Clement backed after Swansea dressing-room bust-up

Swansea’s players have been warned to unite and ­shoulder the blame after their slump to the bottom of the Premier League spilled over at Stoke.

Defender Martin ­Olsson revealed how Saturday’s 2-1 loss in the Potteries sparked angry exchanges in the away dressing room.

And with manager Paul Clement under increasing pressure, ­goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski believes the players have been letting their boss down.

“That’s the strange thing about football,” said the Polish stopper. “We’re the ones who have to deliver on the pitch but the guy punished most for it is always the manager.

“From my point of view, he really does a good job for us, ­really tries to prepare us in the best way possible and then it’s up to us to deliver on the pitch.

“He showed us the strengths of the Stoke team — then we got beaten on those things. He can’t do anything about that. It’s difficult times for him because he’s trying his best but we as a team have to deliver.”
