Patrick Vieira has left Premier League club, Crystal Palace, after the club could not pick a win in 12 matches.
Crystal Palace have not won a match since the year started and were beaten 1-0 by Brighton in a recent Premier League match, their third defeat in a row.
Though they are currently 12th on the log, they are only three points above 18th-placed Bournemouth, who have a game in hand.
While announcing the development, Chairman Steve Parish said: “It is with enormous regret that this difficult decision has been made.
“Ultimately, results in recent months have placed us in a precarious league position and we felt a change is necessary to give us the best chance of retaining Premier League status.”
Vieira was appointed before the start of the 2021-22 season and led the club to a 12th-place finish. He earned praise for an attacking style.
Meanwhile, they have scored just 21 goals in 27 games this season– only Wolves, Everton and bottom placed Southampton have fewer.
Before the Brighton defeat, Palace played 3 consecutive matches without a shot on target.
No Premier League team has garnered fewer points than Palace this year as they have garnered five from a possible 33.
