Swansea sack manager Paul Clement

Swansea City have sacked manager Paul Clement following the club’s troubling form since the start of the season.

The Swans have won just three times all season, and Monday’s 3-1 defeat at Everton saw the club slip to the bottom of the Premier League.

Club chairman Huw Jenkins confirmed Clement’s dismissal, saying that changing the manager halfway through a season was the ‘last thing we wanted to do’, but the club felt they couldn’t ‘leave it any longer and needed to make a change to give the best chance of an uplift’.

45-year-old Clement took charge of Swansea in January, he replaced Bob Bradley with the club in the relegation zone and guided them to a 15th-place finish.

Clement was previously part of Carlo Ancelotti’s staff at Bayern Munich, as well as Real Madrid and Chelsea, and also managed Derby County for most of the 2015/16 Championship season.
