Mitchell: We need someone who can bring success

AFC Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell is keen to find a experienced manager who can bring success to the Goldsands Stadium.

Since the departures of former manager Paul Groves and his assistant manager Shaun Brooks the Cherries have been linked with a number of high profile managers.

Former Tottenham and Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp, who has recently been at Dean Court in an advisory capacity, has previously stated that he wouldn't be interested in the managerial position at the club, whilst former manager Eddie Howe has also told the press that he is proud to be the manager of Championship side Burnley.

Current Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson, wouldn't comment on speculation linking him with the job, but has stated that there is still a job to do at Huish Park.

Former player Steve Cotterill has been the bookmakers favourite for the position, whilst MK Dons manager Karl Robinson, Carlisle boss Greg Abbott and Steve Robinson have been linked by the Daily Echo.

Steve Lomas, Glenn Hoddle, Alan Curbishley, Ruud Gullit, Paul Ince, Sean Dyche, Ray Wilkins and Lawrie Sanchez have all been listed by the bookmakers at various times over the past couple of days.

Mitchell told the Daily Echo...

"I can`t expect Championship or Premier League managers in jobs to step back to League One. Realistically, the wages paid in the Championship and Premier League are above what we can afford at this moment in time.

"We have always got to look after our money and can`t compete with Championship and Premier League clubs. It might be a different kettle of fish when we get there but we have got to work within a League One budget."

"We need the right person, We need someone who can bring us success. We have got to be sensible with our money so that is a consideration. I am keen to get the right person as quickly as possible...'
