Patrick Vieira


Last quote by Patrick Vieira

We have to build the belief that we can do it. The way we play the game, of course, we can concede as well. But we can score a lot of goals. When you look at our record, even last year, in games in general, we are capable of doing it. This is a difficult task, there's no doubt about it. There's no team in this league who went (that far) down and turned it around, it never happened. But there's always a first time. It may be Sunday, it may be next

There were talks with Ligue 1 clubs. Saint-Etienne? There were discussions. I never asked to leave, I'm very good where I

I think it happened that he lost the ball. It just so happened that this time it was Andrea. A lot of players have lost the ball in a really difficult area, but it happened that we conceded the goal. That's part of the game. You make a mistake and you get punished right away. We have players who make mistakes and make the wrong decision, and sometimes we concede the goal and sometimes we don't concede the goal, but that is not the reason why we lost the

Aug 29 2017 - Manchester United

When you talk about Jose who I had at Inter Milan, he was always focused on the details, giving players information that allows them to go on the field and respect the tactical game. I believe there are different types of leaders on the field. You have the technical leader, you have the vocal one, you have the one who doesn't talk but shows it in his desire and how he

Aug 29 2017 - Manchester United

I'm more like that: the one who isn't as vocal as Tony Adams but will show it how he competes on the field. And you have the type of leader who will want to take a penalty in the 95th minute – this is part of being a leader as

Aug 29 2017 - Manchester United

Aug 29 2017 - Manchester United

Would I like my team to be more like a Jose or an Arsene team? I would like to be the balance of both. I would like my teams to have the discipline that Jose has but also allow players to express themselves into that discipline like Arsene. Arsene always gives freedom to his players. To have that freedom is good but if you can get them to respect the tactical aspect of the game it will be even better. But that is not enough to win football matches or to win competitions. In our time we were winning and we had the strength to not play well but somehow manage to win the game

Aug 28 2017 - Manchester United

It was important to win because I believe that it's always good to get close to Toronto, but I believe that Toronto are already the champions.

Jun 24 2017

When we look at all the games that we played against the Red Bulls previous to this year, they always wanted it more than us and that is unacceptable at this level.

Jun 23 2017

We don't have any special treatment for Wright-Phillips. What we need to do is stop the players who supply him. He's a player who, if we give him space, if we make any mistakes, we get punished straight away because he smells the goal. We have to be at our best if we're going to get the clean

Jun 23 2017

We've played some good football lately, even when we lost against them in the (U.S. Open) Cup. I was quite satisfied with the way that we tried to develop our game, and I think in that game we were a little bit unlucky, especially in the first half. I was quite happy with the way we played against Seattle, so we're playing some good football at the

Jun 23 2017 - Venezuela

We knew about the talent because we scout him and we scout him quite really well. He just needed time to to adapt to the country, to try to understand the language, to understand the pace of the game. He needed time to adapt himself. And then he started to feel comfortable and now he's playing fantastically well for us. He's an important part of our team and I'm glad that he's doing well. I still believe there is more to come from

I'm really glad for James because he came with us on preseason and he did really well, showing us how good he is. He fully deserves this contract, he's a young talent and now we have to help him to develop that

Jun 21 2017

I've been in the game for quite a long time, and my head and my mind is really focused on what I want to achieve and what I'm trying to achieve with New York City FC. It's always flattering – I don't say it's not. It's always flattering to be linked with clubs, but at the end I know where my head

Jun 21 2017

I think to have my name linked with Saint-Etienne or any other team is always flattering, I think it's always good. But it stops there. It's not going any further than that. I am really happy here, I am really into the project because it is really exciting what we're trying to build at this football club and I want to be part of

I think when you come into MLS, you have to be humble. I think you have to respect the league and not take it for granted. I think this is a good start. Then, of course, as a football club we have a responsibility to understand that they are here to compete, to work hard for the team and give the best for the team. If you managed to do that, I think we can manage to get the best of the

May 01 2017

I think the characteristics of the players are different. When you want to be a bit more solid defensively, this is why I choose Yangel. There will be a time when we have more possession that I will want players to create and to help to build up from the back, and then I will go with

You guys are just seeing the fact that Tommy put the ball in the back of the net, but from my side I see the buildup of that. I see the touch of David (Villa), and the collective play of (Matarrita) and Tommy was in the right place at the right time, with the quality and the strength to put it in the back of the

Apr 01 2017

Players need to understand that, yes, it's tough, it's difficult, but it's a competition at the end of the day. Wrongly, or rightly, I have to make a decision. Sometimes I make it right, sometimes I make it wrong, but Tommy's attitude has been fantastic, it's been really

Apr 01 2017

I made the decision to take off Andrea, it's not because he was having a bad game, I thought he was playing quite well. In the first half he was managing to get on the ball and to dictate our game, I just wanted something a little bit different, which is why I changed Andrea for Tommy, and it went in the right way. This is part of a coach making a decision. It was a tough one to make because Andrea was having a good

Apr 01 2017

I always love Tommy, not just the player, but the person. He has been a professional, a good professional. His work ethic in training hasn't changed at all. Even more, he wanted to show me that he deserves to be on the field, and that's what I like, and what I appreciate about him. Tommy, like all the other players, wants to be on the field. Tommy, Fred (Brilliant), R.J. (Allen). This is how we will build a really successful football team and football

It was important for us to improve our team, and this is why we (brought) those players. We knew about their talent, and when the team performs like we did today it's more easy for them to express their talent. We looked really strong defensively, we looked really strong because Rodney, David and Jack worked really hard. And when the front three works that hard it makes it easier for the back four to

Mar 11 2017

I strongly believe that soccer will be the No. 1 sport in this country in a few years. I was just reading the news that the game that we played against Orlando [Florida] was like 14-15 percent more viewers. I'm not surprised at all because when we are working at the stadium in New York or when we play away, there's always people around asking for

Mar 10 2017

I think Arsene knows better than anyone what he has achieved and he knows what he wants to do and he will make a decision. I don't want to get involved to say if he should stay or go, he has enough experience to make the correct decision and the best decision for the football club, he has always done this and will continue to do so.

He is passionate about the game so he will know what is best for him and the football
