Liverpool legend Graeme Souness believes Cherries have “got to keep their nerve” throughout their season-defining Premier League run-in, to keep alive the club’s “incredible” top-flight exploits. The former Scotland international, who has regularly watched Cherries along with his media work for Sky Sports, was full of praise for the job done by Eddie Howe to put the club on the global stage.
Graeme Souness said “I think by their own standard they have been disappointing. I know the injuries have hurt them. But they’ve always seemed to finish the season well. For Bournemouth to survive for five years, it’s been an incredible achievement. But it’s a difficult season for them, they’ve got to keep their nerve. They have done that in the past, so hopefully they do it again. I’ve said this, there should be a statue outside the stadium for Eddie Howe, for Bournemouth in the Premier League. This is their fifth season in the Premier League, little old Bournemouth. It is an incredible story. I managed Blackburn for four years. Blackburn, in Lancashire, a town that people didn’t know where it was. But because of football and the Premier League and the profile the Premier League has, people in Europe now know where Blackburn Rovers is. That’s what’s happened to Bournemouth. People now are aware of Bournemouth throughout the world that didn’t know before, because of the Premier League football status that they’ve had for five years. It’s some achievement.”
