Crystal Palace Boss Patrick Vieira Admits He Is Bracing Himself For Boos

Posted by

On Boxing Day, Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira expects boos from Tottenham fans when his team visits their fellow London club.

The Eagles will travel across the city this weekend to face the Spurs, and the 45-year-old is well aware of the type of greeting he will receive.

Vieira played for Arsenal for nine years, captaining them to Premier League glory at the home of arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur in 2004.

‘I’m expecting a lot more than a handful of boos,’ the Gunners legend joked.

‘Tottenham is a really difficult venue to visit because of the atmosphere and the players’ enthusiasm when they play at home.’

Spurs lost 3-0 at Selhurst Park in September but have since replaced Nuno Espirito Santo with Antonio Conte.

The Italian has turned Tottenham into a different proposition and their distance covered per game has markedly improved.
