Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook hailed the incredible work-ethic of Eddie Howe and admitted “you can’t slip up” under the Cherries boss. The England international has worked with Howe at the Dorset club for almost four years, having signed from boyhood club Leeds in 2016. And with 68 Premier League appearances, as well as a Three Lions cap under his belt, the 23-year-old believes players “develop a lot” under the manager and his staff.
Lewis Cook said “They all work incredibly hard. The things they do, the things they help us with. I just think the intensity of everything else – we have lots of workshops and things like that to be doing and always trying to improve those one per cents. No matter what area of the club, they are always trying to improve little bits, which I really liked. The first season at Bournemouth, I played the first game and then I got injured shortly after that internationally. But when I came back from injury there, I spent a lot of time with the coaches for two or three months just working on things. I felt I came back from that a lot better player. I learned a lot of things I didn’t know about football and myself, that was big. In the training sessions, some of the drills we do are incredibly mentally tough. We have to have meetings on it beforehand to make sure we all understand it and things like that, which is great. He’s the first in, last out every day. He watches every training session from start to finish probably twice over – every game. I see all the other staff really respect him and everyone really tries to be like him as well but I feel like they all think it’s quite hard to follow perfectly what he does – the amount of time and effort he puts into his job. It’s good for us as players as well. I feel like we develop a lot under him and all the other coaches as well. That’s a massive positive for Bournemouth and coming here.”
