Bournemouth manager Howe already missing football

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe says he's already missing football.

The Premier League has missed one weekend of action after the competition was suspended until April 4 over the coronavirus outbreak.

Speaking to the club's website, Howe said: "It's been such a strange time, something you can never foresee at the start of the season or even a couple of weeks ago, never foresee what would have happened. Of course football stops and has stopped.

"I personally think it's the right decision. I think now we have to make sure that everyone's health around the world takes priority.

"We'll follow the guidelines given obviously but I think there comes a time when you have to put the health of the players and the immediate staff here first, but also it's more than that, it's the health of our supporters, stewards and everyone connected that makes the game of football go ahead.

"With what we're being told and what may lie ahead for us in terms of the country, health of everyone, the elderly especially is the most important thing."
