This is a wonderful opportunity, but there is a lot of work ahead of us and I am eager to get onto the training ground to start working with the players.
I would like to thank the club’s owners for this opportunity and thank the club’s supporters for the incredible welcome they have already given me. I am very excited to begin our journey together and.

Howe has been out of the job since August 2020 following the Cherries’ relegation from the Premier League. It will be a simple relationship between Howe and some players, which include Callum Wilson, Ryan Fraser, and Matt Ritchie, having coached them for five seasons during his time at Bournemouth.
