Bournemouth

Fraser hails Bournemouth boss

22nd November 2018, 18:08 by Gareth Freeman

Winger Ryan Fraser says Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has helped to develop his confidence and self belief.

Fraser has started all 12 of the Cherries' Premier League games this season and has weighed in with three goals.

The winger has now established himself in the Scotland side too under Alex McLeish, having struggled for game-time when former boss Gordon Strachan was in charge.

Fraser grabbed his first international goal in the 4-0 win over Albania last week, and he says his club boss and Mick McCarthy, who he worked with during a loan spell at Ipswich earlier in his career, have been important figures in his development.

"Eddie Howe and Mick McCarthy have helped with self-belief, but it’s probably come from me the most," he told the Evening Express.

"It can sometimes be hard for managers to give you belief, but you need to give it to yourself.

"Sometimes you get moments in games which might spark something for you and I’ve had that this season."
