Patrick Vieira stepped down as coach of New York City FC Sunday, leaving the MLS club to take the reins as the new manager of Nice, which finished eighth in the top French division last season.

Vieira was 39-27-22 while in charge of New York City FC. The team is second in the Eastern Conference this season.

His departure was announced on the website of Manchester City, which is in the same ownership group as NYCFC.

"I would like to thank City Football Group and New York City FC for the opportunity to have coached this tremendous football club," Vieira said in a statement on Manchester City's website. "Leaving New York is an incredibly difficult decision for me and for my family and one that has not been taken lightly."

Vieira, a former star with Arsenal, will take assistants Christian Lattanzio, Kristian Wilson and Matt Cook with him to Nice. They all previously worked for Vieira with Manchester City's youth squad.

There was no immediate word from New York City FC on Vieira's replacement.
