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

Sly: It's the right time to leave

Former AFC Bournemouth director Steve Sly believes that it is the right time to step down from the Cherries board.

AFC Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell confirmed that Sly had stepped down earlier (Thursday), with the former vice chairman of the Cherries having new business interests.

The decision also follows the re-appointment of Adam Murry and the new appointments of Russian duo Mikhail Ponomarev and Alexey Panferov to the board last month.

Sly told afcb.co.uk...

'It is with a heavy heart that I decided to step down, I think it is probably the right time now to leave the club at what I believe is its strongest ever position financially, and potentially its strongest ever position on the playing side.

'With the new investment and new board members coming in, I just felt that there was the need to make a little bit of room for fresh ideas and fresh investment.

'A few ideas are great, but too many ideas and suddenly a horse becomes a camel. So let's leave the boys with the money and the big visions to continue in the successful way that they are currently managing the football club.'
