Howe loyal to Cherries

Published Add your comment

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe insists he is fully committed to the Cherries after turning down the chance to manage Championship side Peterborough.

Howe saw his side lose top spot in League Two on Saturday following a 1-1 draw with Bradford.

Peterborough made an approach to Bournemouth after Darren Ferguson left the club, but 31-year-old Howe said: "I have only just started the job here and it was a bit premature."

Howe added: "I feel I get on very well with the players at Bournemouth.

"I've been at the club for a long time and I would be disappointed to leave - I am happy to stay. I was flattered to be asked about the Peterborough job. It proves you are doing something right. It is always nice to get recognition.

"I'm as ambitious as anyone to do well and to be successful, but what will happen is in the future. I'm just concentrating on the next game here."
