Real Madrid coach Paul Clement reveals he isn't ready to manage Newcastle - yet

Real Madrid Bernabeu

Real Madrid coach Paul Clement told talkSPORT that he isn't ready to take the Newcastle job.

Having been linked with the Newcastle United manager's job by the Daily Mirror recently, Real Madrid coach Paul Clement addressed the situation in an exclusive interview with talkSPORT

"Newcastle are a fantastic football club and I’m very flattered to be linked with them, as well as other great clubs in England," admitted Clement.

However, Clement also said that he isn't ready to leave the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale just yet, but could see himself managing in England in the future.

"But I’m enjoying my experience in Madrid and I think it’s best for me to stay here in the near future, to gain more experience working with these great players at this great club. I’d very much like to come home at some point and try to cut my cloth as a manager," he added.

Clement, 42, is a former PE teacher who has become one of the most coveted coaches in world football in recent years, having made a reputation for himself alongside Carlo Ancelotti.

The Englishman worked alongside Ancelotti at Chelsea, before following the Italian to Paris Saint-Germain and now, Real Madrid.

The highly regarded coach would be an interesting gamble for Newcastle, but it seems like this is another name to cross off the list of potential candidates at St. James' Park having made this revelation.
