Makelele joins Swansea City Coaching Staff

former-chelsea-ace-claude-makeleleClaude Makelele has joined Paul Clement at Swansea in their battle to survive the drop this season. The Frenchman played under Clement for a short period of time while he was at Chelsea but also worked with him when Clement was at PSG.

The Swansea City twitter account confirmed the addition.Screen Shot 2017-01-11 at 16.19.25.png

Makelele, now 43 years old has only had one taste in management previously and it was unsuccessful. He managed Bastia for 6 months before being sacked after not making an impact. He may well prefer the role of being a coach than being the manager.

The Premier League will bring happy memories to Makelele who played 144 times for Chelsea between 2004-08. He will bring good knowledge of the Premier League but his experiences are vastly different to those when he was playing in the Premier League.
