According to Sky Italia, Patrick Vieira could bounce back in Serie A, a few months after his departure from Nice. An appointment would be made with Sampdoria, which has just separated from Claudio Ranieri, for the next few days.
Between Nice and Genoa, there is only one step. Landed from the Gym last December, Patrick Vieira could well find a bench on the other side of the border, in Sampdoria. A meeting between the two parties would even take place next week to start negotiations, according to information from Sky Sport.
Musical chairs between Lille, Nice and Sampdoria
The 1998 world champion was announced in the last few hours in Lille to replace Christophe Galtier, who could just join OGC Nice. But he was not alone in the shortlist since the LOSC would also think of Claudio Ranieri who has just left… Sampdoria.
The ninth in Serie A, who separated from his Italian technician just one season after his arrival, could therefore attract the former Nice coach, who had had a mixed first experience on the Gym bench. The club was ranked 7th and then 5th in its two full seasons, before experiencing a much slower start to the 2020-2021 fiscal year. Sampdoria are also said to be in negotiations with Empoli coach Alessio Dionisi.
A good memory in Italy for Vieira
As the transalpine daily recalls, it would be a great return to Italy for Vieira, who had played for AC Milan, Juventus or Inter, notably winning the Champions League with the Nerazzurri in 2010 and 5 Scudetti in total. .
