Howe: Training most important part of the job

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is looking forward to pre-season and moulding his squad ahead of the new Championship season.

The Cherries are all set to travel to Austria next week for a five day training session ahead of the pre-season games getting under way.

AFC Bournemouth have made three signings since the end of last season with Dan Gosling and Junior Stanislas signing on free transfers from Newcastle and Burnley respectively, whilst Callum Wilson joined the squad on Friday following a 2million+ deal from Coventry City.

The next week will give Howe his first chance to work with his new signings as well as the rest of his squad.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

'...As a manager, training is not only the most important part of the job but it`s also the most enjoyable part for me.

"It`s where you mould your team into playing how you want them to play and certainly from what we saw at the back end of last season, there`s cause for optimism that we can improve.

"As a team you have to find solutions to problems and that`s where pre-season comes into play, because you can work on situations that you know you will face in order to overcome them."

EH worked wonders last summer especially with Fraser - so the same should happen this summer. Shame we couldn't get a better team than Scummers to warm up with but any players remaining there will be excited wearing their new striped shirts. Odds for EH being England Manager in next 20 years?
