July 4 (Reuters) - Crystal Palace have appointed former Nice boss Patrick Vieira as their new manager on a three-year deal to replace Roy Hodgson, the Premier League club said on Sunday.
Vieira, who captained Arsenal to three league titles and four FA Cups as a player, was sacked by French Ligue 1 side Nice in December after a stint that lasted 2-1/2 years. Hodgson left Palace at the end of last season. (Reporting by Rohith Nair and Manasi Pathak in Bengaluru; Editing by Alex Richardson)
