Bournemouth boss Howe: Exercise crucial for mental wellbeing

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe says regular exercise during the UK's lockdown is crucial for mental wellbeing.

The local government 'allow' the public just an hour's exercise outside every day.

Howe has now not seen his players or staff in the flesh for one month, with Cherries sent home from training on March 13 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

He told the Daily Echo: “It's actually been a totally different way of life for me in the sense of the normal routines (in football) that I have gone through and had for such a long time. This is the first time that has probably changed.

“Keeping fit for me has been huge for my own mental wellbeing. I have always tried to stay fit all my life.

“I think your mood and everything is lifted once you exercise, so that's something that's never changed."
