Reports have emerged this week that Patrick Vieira could take the Newcastle job this summer, and Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to express their approval of the possibility of Vieira being the next manager.
If these reports have any truth to them, then the Frenchman will replace John Carver, after the club ruled out appointing him as permanent manager after keeping the Magpies in the Premier League with a final day win over West Ham.
Vieira’s odds to become the next Newcastle boss have fallen dramatically over the last couple of day, and the former Arsenal man is currently at 4/5 with Betfred. It seems to be a two-horse race in terms of who will take the job as Steve McLaren the former Derby boss has been a name that has cropped up.
Following the reports linking Vieira with the job, Newcastle fans took to Twitter to show their delight at the rumours.
