Paul Clement 'not leaving Real Madrid' despite QPR link

Carlo Ancelotti’s No.2 admits it would be “a real honour” to manage the Premier League side but insists he will not leave before the end of the season

Real Madrid assistant coach Paul Clement has ruled himself out of the running to become QPR’s new manager.

Harry Redknapp resigned as QPR boss on Tuesday, while Clement, Steve McClaren and Tim Sherwood are among the frontrunners to take charge at Loftus Road.

But Clement, who has worked as Carlo Ancelotti’s number two at Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Madrid, insists he has no intention of leaving the Spanish club before the end of the campaign.

“I’m very flattered to be linked with Queens Park Rangers, a club I supported as a young boy and for whom my Dad played,” Clement told The Guardian.

“It would be a real honour to manage that club at some point in the future. But, at this time, I’ve got no intention of leaving Real Madrid in mid-season.”
