Manager Profile

Time at Club:





Eddie Howe is currently enjoying his second spell at AFC Bournemouth, and what a successive return it has been, with the Englishman leading the Cherries into the Premier League in 2015 for the first time in their history.

Following Arsene Wenger's departure from Arsenal, Howe is now the longest-serving Premier League manager.

The Cherries clinched the Championship title on the final day of the 2014/15 campaign, which resulted in Howe deservedly being crowned the LMA Manager of the Year. Howe went on to keep the south coast side in the top-flight, then propelled them up to 9th in 2016/17, and 12th the following season.

Howe previously managed Bournemouth between 2008 and 2011, successfully guiding the club to promotion up to League One in 2009. Howe went on to have a brief spell in charge of Burnley before returning to his beloved Bournemouth in October 2012, and went on to inspire a simply stunning transformation - two promotions in three seasons.

Managerial Career


Eddie Howe Quotes

I would have said a few years ago that I had no interest whatsoever in working abroad, but i'm more interested now. I'd need to improve my languages, though. I've only got a C in GCSE French.

Ultimately, I have three promotions on my CV but I don't look at those and feel they show that i'm good at what I do.

My big passion is music. I'll tell you my secret thing: I'm a massive A-ha fan. They have got back together and are releasing a new album so i'm excited by that.
