Last quote by Paul Clement

What you don't see is many 19-year-olds playing in the Premier League and scoring goals. Which other teams have got 19-year-olds playing up front? There's not many; there's a couple.feedback

Paul Clement quotes

Sep 30 2017

He still has that power and I have no doubt that he will score goals for this club.feedback

Sep 16 2017

All our guys defended brilliantly, that puts in good stead for the future to know that we can go to difficult places and grind out a result.feedback

Sep 16 2017

I'm very proud of the effort the players put in. [We had] some hairy moments, they [Spurs] came close on a couple of occasions. We didn't create any real chances, but we have to think that's a good point.feedback

Sep 11 2017

He has come to a new club and has new team-mates, a new language, new culture. He did things today that were good and some that were not good. He is a quality player.feedback

Sep 10 2017

It was very frustrating. I'm finding it difficult to understand why I saw what I saw. Although the margin of defeat is very small, ultimately decided by a set-play, for me the difference in the two teams in the performance was much greater than that.feedback

Sep 10 2017

I thought he did some good things and did some things that were not so good.feedback

Sep 10 2017

The fact that I have already worked hard to get him here means he can come here with confidence. He's going to a club that really wanted him and a coach that really wanted him. I think there will have to be a certain amount of patience we show with him, given what's happened to him in the last season. But he's going to be hungry to do really well this season, so that he can perform at a much higher level next season in European football.feedback

Sep 10 2017

There are examples of others where it has worked fine. Rooney to United worked. Ronaldo to United. We are going to try and make sure this one works well. It's for one year and we have to accelerate it quickly to work. It will certainly be a strange new environment for him, but he'll play a lot and will suit Swansea's style of play.feedback

Aug 31 2017

I'm delighted to secure his services. He is a player I know well having worked with him for six months at Bayern Munich before my own move to Swansea.feedback

Aug 31 2017 - Portugal

He is one of Europe's elite young talents who has already achieved a lot for his age, including winning Euro 2016 with Portugal.feedback

Aug 31 2017

Having moved from Benfica to Bayern Munich, he has not played as much as he would have liked. But this move to Swansea and the Premier League will provide him with a real positive development experience.feedback

Aug 21 2017

They have to find ways at keeping the ball and enabling the team to get forward. Their industry was good but I think it could have stuck up front with them a bit better. It's going to be a brilliant learning experience but he's not here on work experience. He's here to deliver and I'm sure it's only a matter of time before he starts scoring goals.feedback

Aug 20 2017

Business is going back and forward between various parties and the most important thing is that we get the right players in before the window closes. I would like to think we could do something before the next game. I want three players, but they have to be good players. We're looking at midfield and forward.feedback

Aug 14 2017

At our managers' meeting at the Premier League last week, we spoke about it. The majority of clubs are in favour, but maybe all have to be for it to go through.feedback

Aug 14 2017

For me it [signing new players] is as soon as possible but the reality is it could go to the final day. What we will have to do is [get] one out and potentially two decent ones in but we want the time to do the negotiating. And if it is on the last day it is too late or you pay way over the amount.feedback

Aug 11 2017

He has got a year to go on his deal and we'd like him to stay for this year and longer. I'm confident he will because of the conversations I've had with Fernando. He's happy here, he likes the work we're doing, and he likes the way we play.feedback

Aug 11 2017

He's a really good player and it's a shame with the injury he got in the summer. It's a freak one and he did finish off the season strongly. His goals were vital and we want to have him as an option.feedback

Aug 11 2017

We would still like to do a couple of other things and we have until the end of August to do that.feedback

Aug 10 2017

I think the way it's going there needs to be more than likely a compromise on both sides and that's very often how a deal is made. Normally when both deals are done it's a win-win situation for both sides.feedback

Aug 02 2017

Assuming it is the right player coming our way and it is someone we are interested in and fills a need in our squad, those deals will always have potential.feedback

Aug 02 2017

Talks are still going on and hopefully we are going to get some news in the next couple of days. I hope it is done today, either way, whether that is selling or not, but we need a quick resolution to the situation.feedback

Jul 29 2017

It's not something that we want [or] will be allowing to drag on until the [transfer] deadline. The deadline I want it to be is imminently for everyone involved at Swansea and Gylfi included. I'm not going to put an actual day on it, but imminently means in the very near future.feedback

Jul 29 2017

With either situation, assuming it's done in the right way in the right time, it's going to be a win-win for us as a club because either we get the valuation we want and we can reinvest and improve the team, or we get to keep a very good player.feedback

Jul 13 2017

We had that situation with Jack Cork. In the summer there was no thought of moving Jack on but it got to a point when another club came in with a really good offer.feedback

Jul 13 2017

That might end up being the case with Gylfi. We don't know yet.feedback

Jul 13 2017

The fans want that, the owners would like that but, ultimately, there's a business side to football as well.feedback

Jul 11 2017

Gylfi has been an excellent player here. He has three years on his contract and if any business is going to be done, it will be done on the terms we want.feedback

Jun 26 2017

There are few unresolved constitutional questions of greater legal and practical significance than whether the Second Amendment entitles ordinary, law abiding citizens to bear handguns outside the home for self defense.feedback

May 19 2017

A lot of players have to make that decision in their careers. I am not necessarily talking about Gylfi, but do they want to be a smaller fish in a big pond or a big fish in a small pond?feedback

May 19 2017

I think Gylfi has a unique situation. He was here on loan and then he went to Tottenham, which was set to be the next step in his career. It didn't work out, he came back here and has done really well. He cannot have another situation like he had at Tottenham, where he potentially goes somewhere and is in and out of the side, and does not gather any momentum. He is going to have that in his mind, if he is going to make the next step it has to be a positive one. Otherwise he is better staying here, being a key player and building something around moving this club forward.feedback

May 17 2017

The fact is I know John, he is a top player and a free agent. So it would only be sensible to have a discussion with him to see if he would be interested. I don't know if he has already decided on somewhere else. A lot of the time these things are already done. But if that is not the case and he would be open to a conversation, then I would be open to that as well.feedback

May 16 2017

There are capable and able footballers here. Over recent games, to ship three goals, four goals, five goals, I'm confident in my ability as a coach that that won't happen under my reign. I can't say 100% it won't – there is a lot of randomness in football. But I'm pretty confident it won't happen because with the players that I've currently got, I think I can get them more organised than they've been, give them a bit of solidity in the defensive work and that's the foundation to build what they've already shown they can be good at, which is the offensive side.feedback

May 13 2017

I have experienced it with John Terry and Frank Lampard at Chelsea, but what I saw last Saturday was special. He went for one with his head, the crowd were going crazy. He put a really strong tackle in as well. Then when he came off, well, that (ovation) was amazing. What an affinity Leon has with the supporters. Unbelievable. That could be seen as an advantage for us, people that understand the history. Wayne spoke in the dressing room just before we went out against Stoke. He had his civilian gear on because he's injured.feedback

May 13 2017

He came in just as we were about to go out and he said 'I hope you all know how important this is. I hope you know. They were the last couple of words, then out they went and did a good job. It's great to have players that have spent years and years here. If we do a good job on Saturday it's going to be easier to watch the Hull game. If we don't I might lie in a dark room somewhere. But our mentality is to go and win the game. That's what we're really trying to do.feedback

May 13 2017

If we get the result it will be tough for Hull, we have to look after our business.feedback

May 06 2017

It (playoff) is a possibility, isn't it? We're two better on goal difference, four goals better (scored). So it is tight.feedback

May 06 2017

Obviously you want to try to avoid it but at the same time I'd take it (rather than going down).feedback

May 06 2017

It's a fantastic win of us at this point of the season when the stakes are so high. I think what it says to everyone is: 'We have an opportunity, don't waste it.' That was the case and it ended up being a positive weekend, but we know how quickly it can swing the other way. We have to make sure now that we are absolutely focused to get a good result next weekend at Sunderland.feedback

May 06 2017

I think the difference was probably that we had experienced that, and you know that it can happen. It was in the back of my mind around 82-83 minutes and I'm sure that was the case with the players. But mentally they stood up to it.feedback

May 01 2017 - Manchester United

He was only receiving confirmation from his assistants.feedback

Apr 30 2017

He was furious. He was furious. He said: 'I've gone down to get my hands on the ball, and I can see that now I can't get it so I've come away from it and [Rashford has] gone down before the contact.feedback

Apr 27 2017

Those players are absolutely vital. We are little and large on the training ground. He is still a very good player, he takes the ball, controls possession. That helps our style and he is instrumental in that.feedback

Apr 27 2017

We have four games to go, two away and two at home. The players are confident and I am confident that we can go and pick up valuable points in all of them. We hadn't been performing well before Stoke. The bad run we had lasted a lot longer than we would have liked. But we put that right against Stoke with our performance and our application and, as I say, I hope now we have turned the corner.feedback

Apr 27 2017

I watched [the film] myself with my staff, we had it on the auditorium, you can't not be inspired by it. It was fantastic and we felt really good coming out of there. Those things, the story and history, I felt inspired watching it. Leon has been club captain and a great influence with the dinners he has taken the players for and he has helped in every way. He is a positive influence and has the best interests of the club and city at heart.feedback

Apr 27 2017

He played very well, you can see his influence on the team and his leadership. He is fit and well, there was no reaction to playing and he will be fit and available.feedback

Apr 24 2017

I'm now the one making the big decisions. The pressure is far greater on me but for the team, whether you're fighting for titles or staying in the league, they're both high-pressure situations.feedback

Apr 23 2017

We haven't had a lot of good fortune lately, so we will take it.feedback

Apr 20 2017

There are five games left with three at home. Our form has been better at home than away and the fact Hull are home to Watford, a game I believe they will win, we have to win. I hope the players respond, they have not responded well over the last six games when pressure has been there but we have to perform to alleviate it. Otherwise the last few games will be for nothing. During the game and after there are a lot of emotions. Some are anger, then there is frustration and then you look back more sensibly.feedback

Apr 20 2017

The players 100 per cent [have the stomach for a fight], they battle and go hammer and tongs in training. They know what is needed, intensity in training is there. If I had seen something different in terms of mood I would be worried. I am not.feedback

Apr 20 2017

I am still optimistic and I get that from the players still. They were disappointed after Watford, but we spoke about how we can do better and the last couple of days have been very positive.feedback

Apr 20 2017

He is a great talent and one of a dying breed of leaders. He has represented that club so well. Players are too quick to move on from club to club now but congratulations to him. If we stay up why wouldn't we be interested? I know him well and would be more than happy to speak to him. That is not something I have thought about at this point, we have to focus on players and games we have got and when the season finishes we can talk about potential targets.feedback

Apr 14 2017

We have links with sports psychologists but to me that is not the answer.feedback

Apr 10 2017

The players' ability to do the things we normally do wasn't there. It was a combination of fatigue from the other night [the late defeat against Tottenham], and anxiety.feedback

Apr 05 2017

The pathway is there. There's an opportunity for the players and I liaise closely with Cameron and Gary about their development. I take a keen interest in the youngsters and seeing them win the league in the style they have is a good sign.feedback

Apr 05 2017

It feels easy here because they're naturally interested in it and Huw is immersed, always around the training ground. There's a can-do approach where the noises are backed up by action. That's not the case at every club. I think the first five years of EPPP have brought a lot of good things but we've still got a huge amount of work to do to reach the next level. It's not perfect and we didn't get everything right but the lessons are being learned.feedback

Apr 02 2017

I've done a list on where the teams are and who has got who in the run-in. But I don't predict the results because it never works out anything like that in reality. In the past, with Carlo, we've had our fixtures out and we'll say, We're going to get three there, three there, a point there, there's three. But afterwards it doesn't look anything like what we've predicted. That is fantasy football. It's not real, so I don't do it. I don't say there is a definite three points, or one point, or none. It's a waste of time.feedback

Apr 02 2017

They had come off the back end of some bad results and it's the last throw of the dice for them. They were thinking, Can they get that bounce back by bringing in someone new? And they thought that was a risk worth taking. When we played Leicester (Swansea won 2-0) it was Claudio Ranieri's last Premier League game. Maybe, if we had caught them in Craig Shakespeare's first game, you might have said it was a different situation. You could look at it and think, Oh we got fortunate with the timing of the Leicester situation - it worked for us there.feedback

Apr 02 2017

But you can't get too tied up with things that goes on outside your team.feedback

Mar 30 2017

Steve has had one game in charge and I have watched that game closely to see if there have been any significant changes.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Manchester United

I thought they played well against Manchester United – 3-1 flattered United a little bit. They will be organised and they will be looking to come here and win.feedback

Mar 30 2017

I think it's good for a young player to have ambition to play at the highest level. I have no problem with that. What I see in Gylfi is someone who is very motivated to play well here and to keep us in the league. Every day in training he does the best he can and it is no coincidence that he is a very good player. The top players have talent, but they also have an unbelievable work ethic. Gylfi has that. We have not had one conversation about him playing anywhere else and that's not a worry for me. Our focus is on Middlesbrough.feedback

Mar 13 2017

It's not an ideal situation when you have a game the night before, any game – never mind rugby league. In my opinion that's not right.feedback

Mar 12 2017

I'm not surprised it can swing so quickly. As quickly as you can make progress and look like you're moving in the right direction, you can quickly go back the other way.feedback

Mar 10 2017

Going into this game we know it is very important for both teams. We've got a slight advantage on Hull, but not much. When I came here in January there were four teams in it at the bottom, now it is seven but it could become four teams again, and it could quite easily become nine.feedback

Jan 08 2017

I think it is unlikely he will be involved in the first couple of games, but his return will not be long after that. It was always going to be touch and go for the start of the season.feedback

Jan 08 2017

Fernando's rehabilitating individually - he has not joined the team training yet. But assuming all goes well, we anticipate that happening in the next 10 days. I think it is unlikely he will be involved in the first couple of games, but his return will not be long after that. It was always going to be touch and go for the start of the season.feedback

Jan 08 2017

The most important thing is that we get the arm right. You don't want him to re-fracture it and then end up with Fernando needing surgery, because a six-week injury can then become a six-month injury.feedback

Jan 05 2017

My players clearly thought it wasn't a penalty and, seeing the replay, the player has deceived the referee. It's clear. There's no other way to look at it.feedback
