Nice finished eighth in Ligue 1 this season, missing out on Europa League qualification by just one point.

Former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira has been appointed as the new manager of French Ligue 1 side Nice.

But he has now returned to his homeland to succeed Lucien Favre at Nice, after the 60-year-old left to take over at Borussia Dortmund.

The former Arsenal, Juventus and Inter Milan star returns to France after a 23-year career overseas as a player and a manager.

Manchester City assistant manager Domenec Torrent has left the club to become New York City FC's new manager. I am very happy to be here.

The Frenchman earned 107 caps for his nation and was part of the team that won the 1998 World Cup and the European Championship two years later. New York City is now second in the Eastern Division, only two points behind the leaders, Atlanta United.

Manchester City - part of the City Football Group that owns the NY club - announced the move on June 10th, but the official communication was made on June 11th.

"Leaving New York is an incredibly hard decision for me and my family and one that has not been taken lightly", said Vieira.

"From the beginning, City Football Group and its leadership, have believed in me and have helped guide me through the last eight years of my career - starting with my time as a player and ultimately culminating with my first opportunity to manage a first team".

"Through its chairman Jean-Pierre Rivere, OGC Nice has announced it was looking for a coach with the ability to continue to play flowing football, bring on young players and take the risk of having them evolve while bringing a winning spirit to the table".

"This coach is called Patrick Vieira".
