Paul Clement has emerged as the latest managerial casualty in the English Premier League as Swansea City as sacked him from the club

The Swans announced the sacking of Clement late Wednesday, with the club bottom of the Premier League, having won just three times this season.

Clement, 45, took charge in January with Swansea in the relegation zone and guided them to a 15th-place finish, but has so far failed to inspire them to higher up the table, prompting his sacking by the Welsh club.

Reacting to the development, Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins said that changing the manager halfway through a season ‘was the last thing we wanted to do’.

He said: "We felt we couldn't leave it any longer and needed to make a change to give the best chance of an uplift."

Following Clément’s sacking, assistant managers Nigel Gibbs and Karl Halabi have also left the club, as the club says it will give a further update on replacement coaching staff ‘within the next 24 hours’.

Clement worked as assistant manager to Carlo Ancelotti at Chelsea, PSG and Real Madrid.
