    Reading appoint Paul Clement as manager


    Joe Jones

    Championship strugglers Reading have confirmed the appointment of former Swansea City and Derby County boss Paul Clement as their new manager.

    The 46-year-old replaces Jaap Stam, who left the Madejski Stadium by mutual consent on Wednesday.

    Alongside his two managerial stints in England, Clement had previously worked as an assistant coach to Carlo Ancelotti at Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

    Reading are just three points above the relegation zone in the second tier after winning one of their last 18 league games.

    A Reading statement said: "Reading Football Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Paul Clement as first-team manager at Madejski Stadium."

    Chief Executive Ron Gourlay added: "I am delighted to have secured the services of a hugely experienced forward-thinking manager like Paul, who I have personally worked alongside during our time spent at Chelsea.

    "Not only has he coached at some of the greatest clubs in Europe, winning trophies, league titles and European honours and working with some of the greatest players in the world, fundamentally he also has a rich understanding of English football having managed in both the Championship and the Premier League in recent years.

    "Now, everyone at Reading Football Club is fully behind Paul and his squad of players as, together, we initially set our sights on an eight-game battle and continue to strive to the take this club forward."
