Plenty of Crystal Palace fans have been reacting to an update regarding Patrick Vieira on social media.
Palace are on the hunt for a new manager following Roy Hodgson’s Selhurst Park exit at the end of the 2020/21 campaign.
Former Arsenal midfielder Vieira was reportedly placed on the Eagles’ shortlist as a possible replacement for Hodgson back in April.
However, it appears as if Palace could miss out on the 44-year-old, who was sacked by Nice in December.
Vieira’s agent told Il Secolo XIX that the Frenchman is in contention to take over at Serie A side Sampdoria, with a meeting in place.
Some reports have however claimed that swoop could be off too.
How many signings do Palace need this summer?
Palace fans react
“Absolutely devastated. Can’t believe we’ve missed out on him.”
“Gutted we missed out on Vieira”
“Just announce Nuno.”
“What a shame.”
