Vieira led New York City to two consecutive playoff appearances and leaves with the team in second place in the Eastern Conference. "I'm leaving NY with some wonderful memories and I will always be a fan of the club", Vieira wrote in a statement published on Twitter.

Manchester City have confirmed Arsenal legend Vieira will take over as Nice boss this summer.

After various coaching roles at Manchester City, Vieira became head coach at New York City FC in 2016, with the club steadily improving since.

Vieira paid tribute to the NYCFC fans that have made his time in NY so memorable.

"Though I have been fortunate enough to visit NY on numerous occasions, I am looking forward to living and coaching in this special city and meeting the fans as soon as possible".

Perhaps that seems an odd claim given that the "cult of Pep" is one of the more scrutinized mythologies in modern world football.

Manchester City - part of the City Football Group that owns the NY club - announced the move on June 10th, but the official communication was made on June 11th.

Edelman said: "Khaldoon and I have been fortunate to know Patrick since he joined City Football Group in 2010".

Add to that a 1998 World Cup winners' medal and success at Euro 2000 and Vieira's distinguished career is one that many will remember. "We know that leaving the club has been a hard decision for him, but we understand his choice to return to Europe where he spent his whole playing career", team vice chairman Marty Edelman said. "We have the most talented and balanced roster of players since the club was formed".

"On behalf of all at CFG and NYCFC I would like to thank Patrick for his hard work and commitment while at the Club".

"I spoke with him to wish him happy holidays and to tell him that we are waiting for him on July 2".

It was an honor to play for you and your staff (Christian Lattanzio, Kristian Wilson & Matthew Cook).

An announcement on a replacement Head Coach will be in the very near future.
