Bournemouth boss Iraola admits goalscoring concern

Bournemouth boss Andoni Iraola admits their goalscoring is a concern.

The Cherries meet Burnley on Sunday.

Iraola said: "In the last games we are having a lot of shots and a lot of chances, but we are not finishing well," admitted Iraola, when asked how he can fix the issues in front of goal.

“This is obvious. We are missing the shots, especially shooting a lot high.

“It is not a matter of okay let's shoot 200 today and 200 times tomorrow.

“It is a matter of valuing each chance, each shot and giving the importance to every control.

“At the high level, you don't have a chance every five minutes.

“You have maybe one and if you are lucky and playing well, maybe you have another and maybe your teammate has another.

“So every time you are close to their box and you are confident enough to shoot, you have to value it's importance.

“But the thing I don't want is to lose confidence of 'I am not going to shoot because I have been shooting very bad the last three times'.

“No, we have to trust our players, reinforce them and give them the confidence to shoot from long range or wherever they feel they can be dangerous."
