SENDING WITH FULL SCRIPT SHOWS: SWANSEA, WALES, UK (JANUARY 5, 2017) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1. NEW SWANSEA CITY MANAGER PAUL CLEMENT ENTERING NEWS CONFERENCE 2. (SOUNDBITE) (English) NEW SWANSEA CITY MANAGER, PAUL CLEMENT, SAYING: "Well, you have got to get results. I have been very lucky over the last years to work at some wonderful clubs and win a lot of games and be involved in competing for titles at domestic and European level. So, I am a competitor and I love to win so the first thing is to try and get some positive performances and as a result of that, good results." 3. WHITE FLASH 4. (SOUNDBITE) (English) NEW SWANSEA CITY MANAGER, PAUL CLEMENT, SAYING: "I know it can be done (saving Swansea from relegation) but that target is so far away. The concentration from my point of view and for my staff is about details, much smaller things. Getting the team organized, good defensive shape, getting people to understand their roles and responsibilities. My belief is that if you get that right, if you get the preparation right and then you are able to go on the field and execute it, then you have a better chance of the results coming. If you focus on that and I know a lot of talk will be about that; can they survive, yes they can, they have no chance. We are really focussing on playing football and putting in performances over a 90 minute period." STORY: Swansea City's new manager Paul Clement held his first pre-match news conference in the role on Thursday (January 5). The Swans travel to play Hull in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday (January 7). Aside from the FA Cup the two clubs are battling each other to escape the Premier League relegation zone. Swansea lie 19th out of 20 clubs in League - and Hull are bottom. Clement left his job as assistant coach at Bayern Munich to take over at Swansea. "I have been very lucky over the last years to work at some wonderful clubs and win a lot of games and be involved in competing for titles at domestic and European level. So, I am a competitor and I love to win so the first thing is to try and get some positive performances and as a result of that, good results," demanded Clement, who has also worked at Chelsea, Paris St-Germain and Real Madrid as Carlo Ancelotti's assistant. His hopes may have been raised on Tuesday (January 3) when he saw the Swans beat Crystal Palace 2-1 at Selhurst Park.
