Paul Clement: Swansea City must focus on football

13th January 2017

Paul Clement has urged his players to focus on their football as he bids to lead Swansea City away from relegation danger.
Clement accepts that all talk outside the club will be about the scrap to avoid dropping out of the Premier League.
But the Swans' new head coach wants his squad to forget talk of possible safety targets and concentrate instead on getting their performances right.
And ahead of his Liberty debut against Arsenal on Saturday, Clement is adamant the Swans' aim attempt to play their way out of trouble.
"A lot of talk around the club and the team is going to be about Premier League survival and being in this division next year," Clement tells this weekend's edition of Jack Magazine.
"But, as I say, I think what's important for us is to look on a smaller level at the moment. We have to start delivering some match performances.
"I want to get back to playing the style of football Swansea City have been known for going back 10 years to when Roberto Martinez was in charge and also under people like Paulo Sousa and Brendan Rodgers."
