Video: Patrick Vieira Shows He’s Still Got it as He Joins in Training With New York City

New York City manager Patrick Vieira may have celebrated his 41st birthday last month, but the former Arsenal midfielder hasn’t lost a step since his retirement.

Vieira hung up his boots in 2011, before moving into management to take charge of Manchester City’s reserves for two years.

The World Cup winner then made the transition to the MLS, as he took over the reigns at newly formed New York City – a job he excelled in last season.

And it seems the Frenchman is still as keen as ever to get his hands dirty training – something he showed in abundance this afternoon as he put his players through their paces.

City currently sit third in the Eastern Conference – a decent standing considering the team only formed in 2015 and are essentially playing catch-up on the other sides in their division.

And it’s not hard to see why the New York-based franchise are doing so well, especially with a determined coach like Vieira at the helm:

 

 

It seems unlikely that City will be able to do enough to catch front runners Chicago Fire and Toronto FC this season, despite Andrea Pirlo and David Villa still being on the scene.

However, it’s clear this is a team that can certainly go places while Vieira is calling the shots… at least in training anyway!
