Paul Clement Has Been Sacked By Swansea City

Paul Clement Has Been Sacked By Swansea City

Sky Sports News understands Swansea were interested in approaching Koeman to replace Paul Clement after he was sacked on Wednesday evening.

Swansea are bottom of the Premier League following Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Everton and find themselves four points adrift of safety after losing nine of their previous 11 games.

"We can confirm that the club has tonight parted company with head coach Paul Clement", the club said on its Twitter account.

Swansea, I know you want to survive the drop this season, but is it really worth it if you have to watch Pulisball for the next 6 months or longer?

"To change the manager, especially at only the halfway point of the season, is the last thing we wanted to do as a club".

"We had three different managers last season and as a result we all wanted to give Paul as much time as possible to turn things around". Even though many in the boardroom had been supportive of the manager, he had to go after the club's rock bottom position in the Premier League.

Clement was sacked as manager of the Swans on Wednesday night and the club are now at the bottom of the table and two points adrift of safety.

While the new manager "bounce" is often over-stated, it has seemed to play a part in Liverpool's recent set backs against Everton and West Brom (well, that and helpful assists from the refs).

Assistant coaches Nigel Gibbs and Karl Halabi have also left Swansea.

But the summer departures of Gylfi Sigurdsson, Fernando Llorente and Jack Cork significantly weakened Clement's hand, and the former Derby boss had hoped to be given the January transfer window to strengthen his squad.
