Chelsea legend Claude Makelele has joined Paul Clement’s coaching staff at Swansea City.

The 43-year-old was sacked by the French club Bastia after less than six months in charge but the Wales club feels he could be of great help to their team as they battle for survival in the premier league.

The Frenchman spent five successful years with the Blues, helping the club win two Premier League titles and the FA Cup. He also won two La Liga titles and the Champions League during his time at Real Madrid.

However, it will not be the first time Makelele will be working with Paul Clement as he previously worked with him as a coach at Paris Saint-Germain.
