Mitchell: A great coup for the club

AFC Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell has stated that the return of Eddie Howe to the Cherries is 'a great coup for the club'.

Howe left the Cherries for Burnley in January 2011 after a very successful period in charge of the club, avoiding relegation out of the football league following a seventeen point penalty and then securing automatic promotion to League One the following season.

His time at Burnley hasn't seen as successful, with Burnley currently still in transition following their relegation from the Premier League.

But whilst Eddie Howe saw his job at Burnley as unfinished, he left the Championship club on Friday evening due to personal reasons and will become the Cherries manager for a second time.

Former assistant manager Jason Tindall will also return to his former role, while Mitchell has also said that former manager Paul Groves and assistant Shaun Brooks could also be added to the new management set-up.

Mitchell told the Daily Echo...

'Eddie (Howe) knows us and we know him and it is almost as if I am appointing another person from in-house because, in the spirit of things, I don't think he ever left.

'It is a great coup for the club and we are very pleased with the deal. We now feel we have got the best off-field team in place and the best squad we could assemble. We have got to do the rest on the pitch now...'

'...We will be looking at trying to retain the services of Paul (Groves) and Shaun (Brooks). With Eddie and Jason (Tindall) coming back on board, the knowledge this would give us would make us unrivalled in our league and we would have to make the best use of it...'

Thank you Eddie Mitchell !!! Maybe the third golden period in my lifetime is not over after all. Lets take the opportunity the two Eddies have given us and work together to make it a diamond period.
