Winning start for new Swansea boss


January 04, 2017
AP Swansea City's Angel Rangel (centre) celebrates after scoring the winning goal during the English Premier League match against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park stadium, in London yesterday. Swansea won 2-1.


Paul Clement took his place on the touchline hours after being appointed Swansea manager to see his new team win 2-1 at Crystal Palace yesterday and climb off the bottom of the Premier League.

While Clement made an instant impact as Bob Bradley's successor, Sam Allardyce remains winless after three games as Palace manager.

Wilfried Zaha looked to have rescued a point for Palace in the 83rd minute when he cancelled out Alfie Mawson's header but substitute Angel Rangel netted the Swansea winner five minutes later at Selhurst Park.

The 44-year-old Clement was appointed Swansea manager yesterday afternoon, leaving his role as assistant coach at German champions Bayern Munich for a relegation scrap.
