Swansea City have sacked manager Paul Clement and his backroom staff after a string of poor results in the English Premier League.
The Welsh team are currently bottom of the EPL on 12 points from their opening 18 games with just three wins, three draws and 12 defeats.
According to a statement from the club a replacement will be named within the next 24 hours.
Clement was appointed head coach on January 3, 2017, after the dismissal of Bob Bradley as manager.
“To change the manager, especially at only the halfway point of the season, is the last thing we wanted to do as a club,” chairman Huw Jenkins said on the club’s official website.
“We had three different manager last season and as a result we all wanted to give Paul as much time as possible to turn things around.
“But we felt we couldn’t leave it any longer and needed to make a change to give us the best chance of an uplift and a turnaround in fortunes with the club bottom of the Premier League.
“Paul has been at the club for 12 months and what he achieved in the second half of last season to keep us in the top flight was a tremendous feat. For that, and his effort and commitment this season, it goes without saying that the club thanks him for his work, together with Nigel (Gibbs) and Karl (Halabi).
“I have had an excellent working relationship with Paul and we are all, including the owners, surprised and disappointed it hasn’t worked out this season.
“We wish Paul every success in his career going forward.’’Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
