Howe: Demin is very passionate about the club

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has spoken about co-owner Max Demin's passion for the Cherries.

Howe was asked about the Russian businessman by the BBC, who described him as 'an owner figure who some people see as a bit of a mystery' and Howe revealed that he was encouraged with his and AFC Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell's outlook for the football club.

He also spoke about continuing the current momentum which has seen six wins in seven games in all competitions, with the Cherries having climbed from the relegation places to 12th in the table and just five points away from the play-off positions.

Howe told BBC Radio Solent...

'...I've met Max and spoken to him on several occasions. I can tell you he's very passionate about the football club, he's certainly invested heavily to making a success of this club and he wants to take the club forward.

'I've had really good meetings with him, very encouraged by his long term outlook for the football club and I can tell everybody every decision he makes along with Eddie (Mitchell) is for the best interests for the club and I'm sure the supporters will be very happy to hear that...'

'...I certainly haven't talked about it (promotion) yet, I think it's difficult, when we came in the immediate aim was just to improve short term results and to try and move up the table because points wise we were in a little bit of trouble. Thankfully our results have been good and we've climbed the table.

'Still got a lot of work to do, we're still playing catch up, we're still behind a lot of the fancied teams in the division, but there is still a good chunk of the season left at the same time, so if we can continue short term our momentum and in around Christmas can be in the mix then who knows?'
