Nice lost 3-2 at home to Bayer Leverkusen on Thursday in the Europa League, leaving them third in Group C with three points and without any hope of reaching the knockouts.

They have lost their last five competitive games and lie 11th in the Ligue 1 standings.

“Patrick Vieira, who joined the club in the summer of 2018, is no longer head coach of OGC Nice, effective immediately,” Nice said in a statement.
