Hermann Gerland returning as Bayern Munich assistant coach

MUNICH (AP) — Bayern Munich says former assistant coach Hermann Gerland is returning to replace Paul Clement, who is in talks with Premier League club Swansea.

The Bundesliga side says the decision to reinstate the 62-year-old Gerland – who previously assisted coaches Louis van Gaal, Jupp Heynckes and Pep Guardiola – was taken jointly by the club and current coach Carlo Ancelotti.

Bayern gave Clement permission to hold talks with Swansea over becoming coach the day before.

Clement would be the south Wales team’s third manager this season, with Francesco Guidolin and then Bob Bradley fired.

The 44-year-old Clement had been working alongside Ancelotti at Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and, this season, Bayern.

Swansea is in danger of being relegated after six seasons in the Premier League.
