'If It's Football, It's Vital'

James: I feel rejuvenated

AFC Bournemouth 'keeper David James has said that his career has been rejuvenated by the move to the south coast.

James made the move to the Cherries in late September, signed by former manager Paul Groves who had previously worked with James at Portsmouth.

But after just two games, Groves was sacked as manager and less than ten days later Eddie Howe returned to Dean Court as manager after 21 months at Championship side Burnley.

James spoke highly of Howe and hopes the team can fight for promotion, an achievement the former FA Cup winner and England international has never achieved before in his career.

James told The BBC...

'I love playing football, I feel almost rejuvenated being here. Eddie (Howe) is a wonderful guy and a very, very good manager. And we have a group of players who are enthusiastic to say the least. It is cliched but it is a good changing room to be in.'

'I haven't had this much fun for many a year. It is environmental. If you come into a nice workplace it spawns enthusiasm. The manager is very clear in his decisions and it makes things a lot easier for the players to come into...'

'...The enjoyment and enthusiasm I have here, the opportunity to get promotion, which I have never done...'

James looks like he has years left in him. I think we got a real promotion asset in him.
