NYCFC star on playing against and under Patrick Vieira


Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard is set to embark on his first full season in MLS when New York City FC’s 2016 campaign gets underway, and his head coach is a familiar one.

Former England international star played against first-year New York City FC manager Patrick Vieira when both were in the Premier League, and he recalled some of those memories on this week’s Planet Fútbol Podcast in an interview with SI’s Grant Wahl.

The 37-year-old who is two year older then his head coach Vieira nearly to the day, spoke of how overmatched he was when the two first went head-to-head in the Premier League and how their relationship has changed now that Vieira is running the NYCFC show, in place of ousted manager Jason Kreis.
