Patrick Vieira revealed that Crystal Palace are ambitious under him but the fans need to have a certain amount of patience. The Eagles start their season away to Chelsea. Crystal Palace have had as many as nine first-team layers leave the club. Vieira has taken the reigns from Roy Hodgson who was at the helm for four years.
“Of course those players need time and as a manager to put my ideas in place may take longer, but we are quite ambitious and want to perform and compete at this level.” new Crystal Palace head coach Patrick Vieira said. “We are really in a positive way the fact we started the pre-season in a good way, with the way we played those games, and we managed to get a couple of wins that give us confidence, but we know at the same time it will be equally challenging. We will be ready to compete and we want to compete.”
“I think this football club has some values. When you look at the way the team conducts itself in the last couple of years, fighting to stay in the Premier League, commitment and hard work is part of the DNA and that is something we have to keep.” he added. “But it will be important for me to try to implement the vision that I have of the game. We have some exciting young players in our football club and it will be important for me to manage and make them play at the level I know they can do, which will help us play some good football.”
