Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira has been sacked as manager of Nice following a disastrous run of results.

The 44-year-old took charge of the Ligue 1 club two-and-a-half years ago, replacing Lucien Favre, following a stint at New York City.

Nice finished seventh in the French top flight after Vieira’s first season at the helm but he has been unable to build on that promising start.
