Reading have appointed Paul Clement as their new manager.
The former Swansea and Derby boss takes over from Jaap Stam, who was sacked earlier this week.
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,” Reading’s chief executive, Ron Gourlay, told the club’s website.
“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.”
Reading said Paul Clement had been studying football and other sport in the United States in a series of study visits since he left Swansea.
