Swansea near Paul Clement appointment as Bayern Munich confirm talks

Alyssa BaileyJan 05, 2017

Swansea City have moved to replace Bob Bradley by appointing Paul Clement as their new head coach on a two-and-a-half year deal.

But the Englishman has worked alongside Carlo Ancelotti at Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and, this season, Bayern.

Swansea are now rock bottom of the Premier League, having amassed just 12 points from their opening 19 games this season.

"As a Supporters' Trust we are of the view that the appointment of Paul Clement represents what Swansea City have traditionally sought in their managers", said supporter director Stuart McDonald. It was a role I enjoyed thoroughly before I went to Bayern Munich as assistant manager. Paul Clement is one of the better examples, having served as Carlo Ancelotti's right-hand man since 2009 and as coach of the Reserves and the younger age groups before then.

Clement, 44, was sacked as manager of Derby County last February despite the club being fifth in the Championship, the second tier of English football.

Swansea are bottom of the table with 12 points from 19 games, and only West Brom in 2004-05 have survived from a worse position at the halfway stage of the campaign.

But there have been signs of a productive working relationship being established, particularly since the appointment of Chief Operating Officer Chris Pearlman in October.

Now, nearly a year on, Clement is set to return for his second stab at management with Swansea City.

'There is no doubt in my mind that Paul cannot only help us regain that footballing belief, but also restore some much needed pride back into the football club.
