Cle­ment set to wel­come Ancelotti for Swans visit

Western Mail - - SPORT -

PAUL Cle­ment has re­vealed that Carlo Ancelotti is set for a visit to Swansea City fol­low­ing his de­par­ture from Bay­ern Mu­nich.

Cle­ment worked un­der Ancelotti, one of the most highly re­garded man­agers in Europe, at Chelsea, Real Madrid, Paris St Ger­main and Bay­ern be­fore tak­ing the Swans job back in Jan­uary.

Now, hav­ing left his role at Bay­ern last month, the Ital­ian is plan­ning a trip to Wales to see his long­time as­sis­tant.

“Carlo has said he will come and see me,” Cle­ment ex­plained.

“I don’t know when yet, but I am look­ing for­ward to hav­ing him here, and to him spend­ing some time at the train­ing ground and watch­ing us play.”

Cle­ment spoke to Ancelotti on the day he lost his job at Bay­ern.

“I have left him alone since then – I am sure he has been en­joy­ing a break from foot­ball,” added the Swans man­ager.

“But I look for­ward to him com­ing over here. When he does, we will have to time to have a proper catch-up.”
