Bournemouth appoint Jason Tindall as Howe replacement

AFC Bournemouth today announced the appoint of Jason Tindall as the clubs new manager replacing the outgoing Eddie Howe who left the club last week after 8 years into his second spell in charge.

Tindall, who has had connections with the club for more than 18 years as a player and coach, has put pen to paper on a three-year contract at Vitality Stadium and will be attempting to lead the club back to the Premier League.

And Tindall was to be Howe’s assistant from that point on, helping guide AFC Bournemouth to three promotions in six seasons, culminating in a five-year stay in the Premier League.

“It’s an honour and a privilege to be the manager of such a great football club,” Tindall told afcbTV.

“Given the success of the club over the last 12 years, with Eddie in charge and me by his side, I’m not going to come in and rip everything up and start again. I would be a fool to do that.

“But I’m my own person with my own ideas and I will be looking to implement them as soon as we get back on the training ground.

“I know the Championship is a very tough league but my aim is to get this club back into the Premier League at the first time of asking.

“This is a challenge that I feel I’m ready for and one I’m looking forward to.”

AFC Bournemouth owner Maxim Demin said: “Jason has played a huge role in this club’s success over the last decade and fully deserves to step up and become our new manager.

“While his knowledge of and passion for the club is unquestionable, he was the standout candidate for this role.

“He has huge enthusiasm for the project and great ideas to get the best out of a talented squad.

“This is the start of a new era for this football club and I’m excited about what the future holds.”

This is a step in the right direction for the club in appointing a manager who knows the players and the style of play.

Bournemouth have already sold Nathan Aké to Manchester City this week and have also rejected a bid from Sheffield United for Aaron Ramsdale. Tindall will have a tough job in keeping the clubs best players but if he can Bournemouth have a really good chance in promotion back to the Premier League.
