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.”
