AFC Bournemouth 'keeper Shwan Jalal has admitted that he had 'some dark days' after he lost the number one shirt earlier in the season.
After losing the number one shirt last season to Darryl Flahavan and undergoing an operation on his back which kept him out for a number of months, Jalal returned this season as the Cherries first choice 'keeper.
He started nine games under Paul Groves during the first part of the season, but lost his place following the signing of former England International David James.
Jalal was drafted in for FA Cup games while James remained in goal for the fifteen game unbeaten run in the league.
But following defeat to Walsall, Jalal regained the shirt and has played all five of the Cherries last games, which have resulted in a maximum 15 points from a possible 15.
Jalal told BBC Radio Solent...
'...I am not going to lie, I had some dark days but it is how you come through at the other end. At the minute the shirt is mine and I am ever-so happy to have it and all my hard work and dedication is going into keeping that shirt and helping the team...'
'...If you look at the characters in the squad at the minute you can see that the manager has moulded it in the way he wants, with the team spirit he wants, and everybody has signed up to that.'
'It's no secret how highly the manager is thought of, not just in the changing room, but also in Bournemouth. He helped me bring my game on leaps and bounds...'
