Makelele: “I contacted Clement”

Ex-Chelsea, Real Madrid and France legend Claude Makelele has joined Paul Clement's coaching staff at Swansea

Claude Makelele has said he contacted Paul Clement to ask if he could join his coaching staff at Swansea.

The legendary midfielder worked under Clement at Chelsea and was a part of the same coaching staff under Carlo Ancelotti at Paris Saint-Germain.

“Paul is my mentor,” Makelele told Swansea’s website.

“He has taught me a lot of things in my time working with him. When I heard he was back working in the Premier League, I phoned him and asked if I could help him at Swansea.”
