Swansea City FC has announced the appointment of Claude Makelele as their new assistant manager
Swansea City FC tweeted: ‘We’re delighted to announce that former France international Claude Makelele has joined the club’s coaching staff.’
The 43-year old became the head coach of Bastia on 24 May 2014. After less than six months in charge, however, he was sacked on 3 November 2014 following a 1–0 defeat to Guingamp on 1 November, due to his inability to make an impact on the club as coach.
Makelele will join his new boss Paul Clement, who he worked with as a player for Chelsea from 2007-2008, and as a coach with Paris St-Germain under manager Carlo Ancelotti.
