Paul Clement rules out West Brom role
Paul Clement has ruled himself out of the running for the vacant manager's post at West Brom.
As assistant to manager Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid, and following the long-awaited Decima -- a 10th European Cup triumph -- with Saturday's 4-1 victory over Atletico Madrid, Clement has shot to prominence and been linked with a number of roles.
With Albion in search of a successor to Pepe Mel, who left the Hawthorns by mutual consent earlier in May, the 42-year-old was being hotly tipped to move to the Premier League despite his lack of managerial experience.
Clement himself initially stated "the time for me to be a No. 1 is soon," thanking Ancelotti for providing him with the belief he can make the step up after working alongside the Italian at not just Los Blancos, but also Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea.
But Clement, whose brother Neil played for Albion for 10 years from 2000 to 2010, has now suggested his time in Madrid is far from over.
"Working for Real Madrid is a fantastic experience and I'm very happy here at the moment," Clement told talkSPORT.
"My family are settled and we'd like to stay and enjoy this experience.
"I do have ambitions to make that step up to management at some point in the near future, and if the right club comes along at the right time then I'd like to do it.
"But at the moment I'm just going to enjoy my time here."
When it was suggested to Clement a potential move may come sooner rather than later, he replied: "Possibly, but we'll just have to wait and see.
"I'm working at a fantastic club every day, we have great players here and we're competing for big trophies.
"Next year we'll play in the game against the Europa League winners [the UEFA Super Cup]; we'll be in the World Club Championship as well as competing for the Liga title, Copa del Rey and Champions League.
"It's exciting times for Real Madrid.''
