Derby County appointed ex-Real Madrid coach Paul Clement as the club’s new head coach yesterday and the move has been backed by a former England international.
Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher has praised the move from the East Midlands club and thinks the pair are an ideal fit for each other.
He said to Sky Sports: ‘Steve McClaren has done a decent job there over the last couple of years so there is ample opportunity for Clement to try and get Derby back in the Premier League where I think he deserves to be.
‘The style of play will be a little bit different at Derby compared to what he is used to but most number twos who have been that successful want to be a number one and I think he has picked a really good.’
Derby announced the arrival of Clement yesterday who arrives having signed a three-yeal deal with the club.
He will look to secure promotion for the Rams who finished in eight position despite being five points clear at the top of the league back in February.
Derby fans… Are you happy with the arrival of Clement? What do you make to Carragher’s comments?
