Bournemouth boss Howe: Wilshere has taken step back in time

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is happy working with Jack Wilshere.

The midfielder is on-loan from the Gunners.

"He's picked a very brave decision for me," he said.

"He's gone to a smaller club, he's gone somewhere where there's not everything here, there's not everything done for him.

"It's slightly old fashioned in the way that it's like a step back in time for him compared with other Premier League clubs and I think he deserves credit for that.

"I believe our environment can be good for him because the players work incredibly hard, they push themselves to improve and I think that's a healthy environment for any footballer and that's why I think he decided to come here ultimately."
