Harte: It's a special group

AFC Bournemouth left back Ian Harte believes the Cherries squad are a special group of players.

The vastly experience defender made his debut for Leeds United in the Premier League in 1996 and has gone on to make over 500 appearances for Leeds, Levante (Spain), Sunderland, Blackpool, Carlisle, Reading and Republic Of Ireland.

The 36 year old was released by Reading following their relegation from the Premier League at the end of the 2012/13 season and went on to sign a one year deal at Dean Court in June 2013.

He initially played back up to Charlie Daniels, but over the past month Harte has been a regular in the side following Daniels thigh injury.

Harte has paid tribute to Daniels as well as dubbing his team-mates a 'special group'.

Harte told

'Let's be honest, Charlie is a massive player for AFC Bournemouth, He is a tremendous left-back, an attacking left-back, and I think he is one of the players who can push on and play at the highest level.

'He has got all the attributes and is quality on the ball as well, so I think definitely, in the not too distant future, Charlie Daniels will be playing Premier League football.

'Of course, it was disappointing to lose him as he is a massive player. He's been injured for quite a while but thankfully I've come in, done well and I've tried to help the team out.

'All the lads who are on the bench are waiting for their opportunity; it's all about being team players. It's a special group and we all get on really well.'
