Bournemouth

Howe expecting more from Solanke

4th February 2019, 14:52 by Tom Hill

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe believes forward Dominic Solanke will continue to improve after he made his debut on Saturday.

The former Chelsea youngster completed his move to the Cherries from Liverpool ast month but his debut was delayed by an injury.

Solanke was forced to be patient as he waited for his hamstring issue to heal but he started Saturday's game at the Cardiff City Stadium.

The 21-year-old was given an hour to impress in the 2-0 defeat and Howe believes he will soon become a key player once he adapts to Bournemouth's style.

"I thought Dominic did okay," he told the Bournemouth Echo. "It was a difficult game for him to play in with the team not performing as well as we would have liked.

"There were some good bits from him and some bits we will look to improve. It’s good that he played and got a feel of what it is like to play for Bournemouth.

"He has shown a good attitude. Technically, he is a good player. He will get goals if we get the ball into him in the right areas. I’m excited to really get into him and to develop that potential."
