Sam Allardyce selects England assistant manager

According to the Daily Star, this is the man he wants

Sam Allardyce has already picked his England assistant manager as he begins to put his back-room team together.

The Sunderland manager is expected to be officially announced as the Three Lions’ boss today, after the FA confirmed that he was the front-runner to replace Roy Hodgson.

However, whilst the Black Cats and the Football Association negotiate a £2 million compensation package, Allardyce has spent the last 24 hours selecting his coaching team.

And it is believed that he wants Paul Clement to be the national team’s number two for the foreseeable future.

Clement, who is currently the Bayern Munich assistant manager, has also experienced that role at European giants Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid.

He also managed Championship club Derby County for just over half of the 2015/16 season before eventually being sacked.
