Bournemouth boss Howe: Rehiring Fletcher the right call

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is happy to have named Carl Fletcher as loan manager.

Fletcher left the same position at the Dorset club in October last year to become the first-team manager of Leyton Orient.

But less than a month into the job with the League Two outfit, he was sacked after no wins in five games.

Howe told the Daily Echo: “He's the best man to reappoint because he was doing a brilliant job for us in that role before.

“We obviously lost him and wished him well in his new role. We were trying to recruit someone to fill that position.

“Unfortunately for Carl, he quickly lost his job and it was a no-brainer for us because you had someone who already had the experience, the knowledge and bringing someone else in you'd possibly have to train them to get that.

“He's a great fit for us, he's doing really good work with the players there so we're very happy with him."
