​Swansea boss Clement: Multi-cultural Premier League a positive

Swansea boss Paul Clement says he has never had a problem with respect or discrimination during his time in management - and says the multi-cultural Premier League can only be a force for good, reports Sky Sports.

The FA has been in the spotlight over the handling of allegations made against former England Women's manager Mark Sampson.

But Clement, who can count Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid among his former employers says he has not had to discipline any players for stepping over the mark during his eight-year coaching career.

Speaking ahead of Saturday's visit of Leicester, he said: "I'm obviously not privy to every conversation that happens but from my experience of lots of different dressing rooms in different countries, cultures and nationalities, the way I approach it is by using my experience and most importantly common sense.

"There is absolutely a line over what is acceptable and not acceptable and we have a very respectful dressing room of many different nationalities, races and languages and I keep a close eye on it.

"I have not seen any situation where the line has been crossed and I have had to step in. All the environments I have worked in have been very respectful.

"For me, the Premier League is a multi-national league with lots of different cultures and backgrounds and for me that can only be a good thing."
