The former Arsenal midfielder was one of the candidates for the job, but it has now been reported that he is not in contention anymore.
It has been claimed that “Vieira's lack of top-flight managerial experience has counted against him”.
The former France international is the head of the elite development squad at Manchester City, and it seems that Newcastle want someone who has Premier League experience.
The latest update on the managerial situation at St. James’ Park is unlikely to please Olivier Bernard or Ant & Dec.
“His philosophy of football is very good and having been with Arsene Wenger for many years he has ethics that are good enough to build on.”
English comedy duo and TV presenting duo Ant & Dec also wanted Vieira to take charge of the Newcastle first team, while former Sunderland defender Danny Higginbotham thought that the Frenchman was ready for the job.
