Wilshere: Bournemouth boss Howe ideal for me

Jack Wilshere says Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is the ideal manager for him.

The on-loan Arsenal midfielder, 24, made his competitive debut as a second-half substitute on Saturday as Cherries beat West Brom 1-0.

Wilshere said: “There were a few clubs interested but when I found out Bournemouth were in for me, I spoke with my friend Benik (Afobe) and a few of the other lads.

“They all spoke very highly of the manager and as soon as we met, I wanted to work with him, for him to be my coach and to improve me as a player.

“It was not what he said, more the way he conducted himself. After being here for 10 days and seeing him on the training pitch, I felt I could definitely improve here.

“He is a great coach. He is honest with you and takes you through clips of training to show you things you can improve. For me, he is the perfect coach to come to work for."
