Former Premier League midfielder Carlton Palmer says he has been told that Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira is a fantastic coach on the training ground.

Vieira was appointed as Palace boss in the summer following Roy Hodgson’s departure from the club and has made a very promising start to life in south London.

The Frenchman has taken Palace to 10th in the Premier League table and has already picked up a couple of big wins, masterminding victories against Manchester City and Tottenham.

Has Vieira impressed you?





Vieira is undoubtedly getting the job done from the dugout. And from what Palmer has heard, the 45-year-old also makes quite the impact during training.

“I’ve heard he’s a fantastic coach,” the ex-Leeds United and Southampton player told TIF when discussing Vieira’s work. “I’ve heard he’s got a great No.2 who’s in there with him doing a fantastic job.”

Next up for Palace is a trip to Turf Moor to take on Burnley and they will be looking to pick up from where they left off just before the international break.

Vieira’s men ran out 2-0 winners against Wolves last time out, with goals from Wilfried Zaha and Conor Gallagher, now a full England international, helping the team to all three points on the day.
