Rofe remains in charge against Orient

Rofe remains in charge against Orient

AFC Bournemouth first team coach Dennis Rofe will continue in his temporary role as caretaker manager for the Cherries game against Leyton Orient.

Rofe was placed in charge of first team affairs last week following the departures of former AFC Bournemouth manager Paul Groves and assistant manager Shaun Brooks.

He took charge of his first game away to Coventry City last Saturday losing 1-0 and he has been told by AFC Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell that he will be in charge again on Saturday.

The Cherries have lodged an official approach to Championship side Burnley to speak with former manager Eddie Howe, whilst the Echo have reported that the two sides are close to agreeing a compensation agreement.

Rofe told the Daily Echo...

'...The players may be wondering who the next manager is going to be and I am sure they are. I can truthfully say it doesn`t concern me. I just do what I think I am good at and that is to prepare them for the game. I have been in football a long time and, whatever happens, will happen. It is no good worrying about it.

"I had a conversation with the chairman and he said that, regardless of whether a new manager is or isn`t appointed, I will be taking the game on Saturday. If someone were to be appointed today or tomorrow, he wouldn`t have time to get across his own ideas and may want to watch the game...'

'...(Rofe's position) will be for people to decide when they come in. I am well aware that, when new managers come in, they might want to bring in their own staff. As an existing member of staff, I may or may not be part of that. Whatever happens, what I would say is treat people correctly. I have been in football long enough to know how the game works so will just keep working and, hopefully, will continue to do so in the future. If not, so be it."
