Howe talks up Cherries' story

25th April 2019, 12:26 by Alex Jack

Boss Eddie Howe says it's important to keep perspective on how far Bournemouth have come when assessing their current situation.

The Cherries currently find themselves in 14th place in the table and have already confirmed they will be playing Premier League football on the south coast next season.

Speaking at the premiere of the club's 'Minus 17' documentary, detailing their survival in League Two after being handed a 17-point deduction 10 years ago, Howe feels Bournemouth deserve great praise for where they are now.

"It's very easy to focus on the now and what's happening tomorrow but to actually look back and thank people for their efforts and acknowledge the great achievement that it was is very special," he said.

"It's very important that we don't forget the fabric of the club and where the club has come from. It's been a very difficult history, not a smooth ride with a lot of difficult moments and stories of adversity against triumph.

"I think this is one of the great football stories. From the club's perspective there has to be a huge credit to the media team and everyone at the club for acknowledging this event.

"It's what this club has always done very well. It's looked after former players and it has a good nostalgic feel. You don't want to live in the past but it's definitely the right thing to do to acknowledge this at this time."
