SWANSEA CONFIRMS NEW MANAGER PAUL CLEMENT


Paul Clement has been confirmed as Swansea’s new head coach.

The 44-year-old has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract and joins City as successor to sacked American Bob Bradley.

Clement has worked as Carlo Ancelotti’s assistant at Chelsea, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich and had an eight-month spell in charge of Derby last season before he was sacked with the club fifth in the Championship.

His backroom staff at the Liberty Stadium will include Nigel Gibbs, who is leaving a role with Tottenham’s academy to become assistant coach, and new head of physical performance Karl Halabi.

Clement is Swansea’s third permanent boss already this season and arrives with the club bottom of the Premier League at its halfway stage.

He will be at Selhurst Park for Wednesday night’s game against Crystal Palace, but caretaker Alan Curtis will remain in charge for the evening.

Bradley lost seven of his 11 games in charge after replacing Francesco Guidolin in October.
