Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer believes Paul Clement will be a success as Swansea City head coach.

The former Bayern assistant took over at the Premier League club at the start of the year, overseeing his first win in a shock 3-2 victory at Liverpool on Saturday.

Neuer has backed Clement, who is hoping to guide Swansea to safety, to be a hit at the club.

"It's a shame for us that he's not here any more but of course I can understand Paul Clement's view that he wanted to accept the offer from the Premier League," the Germany international told The Set Pieces.

"We know that he was a great guy, who helped us a lot as a team.

"He took on a lot of responsibility [at Bayern], he talked a lot with the players and I think he'll be able to help Swansea."

Swansea's win at Anfield lifted them out of the bottom three and two points clear of Crystal Palace and Hull City.
