Newcastle are being linked with all kinds of possible new head coaches and now we are linked with Real Madrid assistant manager Paul Clement, with the Mirror reporting tonight that the 42 year-old, who was also mentioned when Crystal Palace were looking for a new manager just over a week ago, may now be top of the list at Newcastle.
Paul Clement – Real Madrid number two
The Tyneside club is moving quickly to replace Alan Pardew, and it’s now unlikely that John Carver will get the job after Newcastle’s poor performances in the last two games when Carver has been caretaker manager.
And in the seven games John was the touchline manager last year, after Alan Pardew was banned, John won only one game and lost the other six.
42 year-old Clement was born in Wandsworth, and has also previously worked for Ancelotti at Chelsea and PSG, and he has also held coaching positions at Fulham, Blackburn Rovers and the Ireland U-21 team.
Clement is not unlike former Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho, because he has never played top-class football, but that has not stopped him becoming Ancelotti’s right hand man at Real Madrid.
Paul may be top of a list that is also said to contain former Lyon coach Remi Garde, Dutch coach Dick Advocaat, former Mainz manager Thomas Tuchel and St. Etienne coach Christophe Galtier.
We are hoping that Newcastle will soon make a good appointment, before the number of candidates talked about in the press reaches 100, and certainly before the game at Chelsea on Saturday.
Newcastle seem to prefer Thomas Tuchel from the list of nine candidates in our poll.
