End of the road for Clement at Swansea

Tony Pulis is currently out of work

Manager Paul Clement was disappointed to lose Bony at such an early stage, and he is not sure how long the striker will be out of action for.

The decision comes after Swansea 3-1 defeat at Everton on Monday night left the Swans bottom of the table and four points away from safety.

Swansea City announced on Wednesday that they have sacked their manager, Paul Clement, after their poor results in the Premier League.

Clement said in a statement released via the League Manager's Association on Thursday that keeping Swansea in the Premier League last season was his finest achievement.

"We had three different manager last season and as a result we all wanted to give Paul as much time as possible to turn things around".

Ronald Koeman was sounded out earlier this month but is not interested and Ryan Giggs ruled himself out yesterday, after failing to impress during an interview at the club past year.

Tony Pulis, yet another Premier League manager to be sacked this campaign, was being widely tipped as a front-runner to replace Clement but Sky Sources understand the former West Brom boss is not being pursued by Swansea.

Pulis has been strongly linked with taking over at Rangers, who are still looking for a new manager following Pedro Caixinha's departure in October, but Swansea being in the mix would complicate matters for the Gers given the financial disparity between the two clubs.

The 29-year-old Ivory Coast worldwide was forced to come off in the opening few minutes of Monday's 3-1 loss at Everton.

Swansea City supporters are far more likely to direct their frustrations against the ownership hierarchy at the club.

He's got a hamstring strain, it will be about seven to 10 days so we will see how we go. He scored four goals during the second half of the season and formed an excellent partnership with Federico Fernández at the heart of the Swansea defence, helping the club to stave off the threat of relegation and earning him an England Under-21 call up.

Frank de Boer is now without a job following disastrous spells at Inter Milan and Crystal Palace, although many in the game believe the Dutchman was treated harshly by both clubs. I thank the players for their efforts and wish them the all best for the future.
