Real coach Clement eyes job as No. 1

Real Madrid's English assistant coach Paul Clement has said he is ready to leave the Bernabeu as he looks to prove himself as a manager.

Clement, who has worked with coach Carlo Ancelotti since the Italian spent two years in charge of Chelsea between 2009 and 2011, also working with him at Paris Saint-Germain.

And after watching Real win their 10th European Cup with a 4-1 victory over Atletico Madrid after extra time in Saturday's Champions League final, he said he was keen to test himself further.

"I think the time for me to be a No. 1 is soon," the Mirror quoted the 42-year-old as saying. "A few opportunities have come my way, but this is a difficult place to leave.

"It's a great club, a great city, a great tradition, and it gives you the opportunity to win things.

"I'm not ruling anything out. It's more than likely it will be in England -- but if a nice opportunity came up in another country, I wouldn't rule it out."

He said working with Ancelotti had "given me a lot of confidence and given me the belief that one day I can do it," adding: "But he hasn't kicked me out of the door just yet."
