Howe: Excited to be back

Incoming AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has said that he is excited to become the Cherries manager for a second time.

Eddie Howe will officially be unveiled as the clubs new manager at the Goldsands Stadium ahead of this (Saturday) afternoons fixture against Leyton Orient.

Howe and assistant manager Jason Tindall will both return to the club following 21 months in charge of Championship side Burnley with the duo expected to sign three and a half year contracts.

AFC Bournemouth however has changed a great deal since Howe was last in charge.

Howe achieved promotion with the Cherries despite a 16 month long transfer embargo following the clubs administration, but since then Russian millionaire Maxim Demin has now purchased 50% of the club and the Cherries have now been branded as the 'Manchester City of League One' by the likes of Sky Sports.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

"We are both really excited to be back and it is a great challenge for us to take on. Everyone knows the feelings we both have for the club.

"Everything is very different - the infrastructure, the resources and the expectations - and there will be a lot to take in over a short period of time. We know everyone will have to work very hard to improve the league position but we can`t wait to get started...'

'...It will be up to us to build a team and all our previous success was down to having team spirit and an identity. Although there will be some familiar faces to us, in some respects, we are starting afresh...'

have to say, I actually pleased that he has returned. somehow you guys fit together, but for some reason, I never quite felt that with his at Burnley. I take it Owen Coyle will soon be back in work at Turf Moor..
