Eddie Howe A.F.C. Bournemouth Premier League

Jason Tindall's only previous managerial experience was with non-league Weymouth Bournemouth have appointed Jason Tindall as their manager following the exit of Eddie Howe. Howe left the club by mutual consent after their Premier League relegation at the end of the 2019-20 season. Tindall has stepped up from his role as assistant manager and takes over on a three-year contract at the club where he played 199 games. "It's an honour and a privilege to be the manager of such a great football club," the 42-year-old said. "Given the success of the club over the past 12 years, with Eddie in charge and me by his side, I'm not going to come in and rip everything up and start again," Tindall added.

I fancy Bournemouth to go straight back up next season with the parachute payments and the money they've already received from the sale of Nathan Ake," he told BBC Radio Solent. He moved on to Weymouth, later managing the non-league club for a year, before returning to Bournemouth as assistant manager under Howe's predecessor Jimmy Quinn in League Two in 2008. After Quinn's sacking, Tindall remained as assistant to former Cherries team-mate Howe, while a transfer embargo meant Tindall had to pull his boots on for a handful of emergency playing appearances in 2009. Howe and Tindall worked together for more than 11 years in two spells at Bournemouth, which featured three promotions, either side of a 21-month stint at Burnley. Eddie Howe (right, with Tindall) left the club at the beginning of the month "Jason has played a huge role in this club's success over the last decade and fully deserves to step up and become our new manager," Bournemouth owner Maxim Demin said.

Lee Bradbury succeeded Howe as manager when he first left the club in 2011 and believes he will know how to get the best out of the squad. "Jason has had a good apprenticeship with Eddie Howe at all levels," Bradbury told BBC Radio Solent. It would've been a huge ask for any external candidate to follow Eddie Howe in the role, and maybe some fresh ideas sprinkled on to solid foundations is the short-term, percentage choice. Jason Tindall: Bournemouth appoint Eddie Howe's former No 2 as new manager Jason Tindall was Eddie Howe's assistant manager Bournemouth have appointed Jason Tindall as the club's new manager on a three-year deal, succeeding Eddie Howe. Tindall was Howe's No 2 throughout his managerial reign in both spells at Bournemouth, and when Howe managed Burnley.

Howe ended his 25-year association with the Cherries following their relegation to the Championship. Tindall, who made 199 appearances for Bournemouth as a player between 1998 and 2011, was a key part of the club's coaching staff - helping them rise from League Two to the Premier League in 2015. "It's an honour and a privilege to be the manager of such a great football club," Tindall told afcbTV. "Given the success of the club over the last 12 years, with Eddie in charge and me by his side, I'm not going to come in and rip everything up and start again. Tindall, 42, was placed in interim charge following Howe's exit and this will be his first significant managerial role.

Tindall's Bournemouth are facing their first second-tier campaign in five years and the rebuild of the playing squad is underway with Nathan Ake having already left for Manchester City. Owner Maxim Demin had a hands-on role in making this appointment and has forged a strong working relationship with Tindall over the last eight years. "Jason has played a huge role in this club's success over the last decade and fully deserves to step up and become our new manager," said Demin. Jason Tindall has been confirmed as Bournemouth's new manager following the departure of Eddie Howe. The Cherries have looked within for a new man in charge, promoting Tindall from the role of assistant manager to give the 42-year-old his first major managerial role.

He will now be tasked with getting the club back to the top-flight next season following the relegation to the Championship. "It's an honour and a privilege to be the manager of such a great football club," Tindall told afcbTV. "Given the success of the club over the last 12 years, with Eddie in charge and me by his side, I'm not going to come in and rip everything up and start again. "I know the Championship is a very tough league but my aim is to get this club back into the Premier League at the first time of asking.
