Swansea name ex-Malaga chief Clotet as new 'Academy consultant'

Swansea City have recruited former Espanyol and Malaga youth chief Pep Clotet.

Clotet, 36 and who counts Spain and Barcelona star Cristian Tello as a former pupil, has been given the title of Academy Consultant at Swansea City.

Speaking to the club's website, Clotet said: "I have been appointed to help develop the way Swansea play football throughout the Academy structure.

"It is vital that the Academy produces players able to perform in the Premier League in a style the club has been developing over the last seven or eight years.

"I have been very impressed with what I've seen over the last few weeks. The club is all united in not only developing the first team for the present, but also the whole club for the future.

"The work they have done to provide the excellent training facilities at Landore, plus the additional development at Fairwood, highlights the importance they are placing on the future."
