Even before the position has been officially advertised, Bournemouth have received 20 applications for the vacant managers position at Dean Court.

Although Cherries Chairman Abdul Jaffer would not reveal the identity of any of the applicants, he did tell the Daily Echo

‘We have received applications from some very high calibre managers and coaches.

‘Some of them have high-profile backgrounds and are very well qualified, while others are very modern young coaches.

‘All of them have indicated that they are specifically interested in the position for two main reasons, not the money.

‘They want the job because they like the way we play football and they like the foundation and structure of our club.’

When asked what Jaffer was looking for in the next manager he replied…

‘He’s got to preach the type of football we play.

‘He’s got to have the determination that he wants to be a success and wants to take us to the Championship because that’s what we want to achieve.’
