From Balotelli's babysitter to New York City FC: Vieira's proud Man City legacy

The Crystal Palace boss made a sizeable contribution to City during his time at the club both as an experienced player and later as a coach

There will be a warm embrace when Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira reunites with Manchester City managing director Brian Marwood on Saturday.

The pair have a strong relationship going back to the early years of Sheikh Mansour's takeover when they were a major part of the transformation of the club.

On Vieira's first return with another side, he can take a look around the environs of the Etihad Stadium and feel proud of his contribution.
