AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe insists that Cherries midfielder Mark Molesley still has a chance of rescuing his AFC Bournemouth career.
The midfielder who is out of contract in the summer hasn’t featured for the Cherries since Boxing Day 2011 due to a latest run of bad injuries and is now on loan for a second time with a League Two club.
He ended last season on loan with Aldershot and last week he recently joined former AFC Bournemouth captain Carl Fletcher’s Plymouth side.
Molesley impressed in his first appearance and Howe believes that if Molesley continues to show the same ‘appetite, energy and attitude’ then he will fight his way back into the Cherries fold.
Howe told the Daily Echo…
‘…I think this is the next step in his progression, hopefully, back into our team at some stage. He needs to get games and play on a consistent basis. He is someone who has always been a joy to watch and, hopefully, he will do well with Plymouth…’
‘…I would never shut the door on any player who displays the appetite, the energy and the attitude that he has always shown for this football club. It can`t be underestimated what he did for us in our first spell here. Prior to his injury, I would go as far to say he was one of the biggest influences in our team at the time.
“During the Great Escape season, he was a catalyst off the pitch and he set standards. I cannot speak highly enough of him as a character so you would never shut the door on someone like that who has got the passion to play for this team.
