Clement given permission to discuss Swansea job

Bayern Munich have given assistant coach Paul Clement permission to hold talks with Premier League strugglers Swansea City.

Clement emerged as the favourite to take the reins at the Liberty Stadium after Bob Bradley was sacked by the Welsh club last week.

A Bayern statement read: “Assistant coach Paul Clement (44) has asked FC Bayern Munich for permission to hold talks with Premier League club Swansea City about the position of head coach.

“Bayern head coach Carlo Ancelotti and the management board of Bayern Munich have fulfilled this wish.

“Paul Clement will therefore not be travelling with the team to the training camp in Doha.”

Bradley was dismissed as Swans boss after just 11 matches in charge, with the team languishing in the relegation zone.

The likes of Manchester United great Ryan Giggs and Wales boss Chris Coleman were linked with the position, but former Derby County manager Clement quickly became the frontrunner.

And the 44-year-old looks set to leave his post as Ancelotti’s assistant in favour of a switch to south Wales.

As well as managing Derby, Clement has also held assistant coaching posts at Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid.

Clement will be the fourth man to take charge of Swansea in the Premier League this term, with Bradley replacing Francesco Guidolin, while Alan Curtis was in interim charge for Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at the hands of Bournemouth.
