AFC Bournemouth striker Yann Kermorgant is determined to win his place back in the Cherries starting line up.
The 33 year old French striker made the move to Dean Court 12 months ago. Signing for the Cherries from Charlton on a reported £400,000 deal.
The veteran striker enjoyed an impressive start to life on the south coast, scoring 9 goals in just 8 games at Dean Court, as the Cherries went on to record a new club record highest finish of 10th in the second tier of English football.
So far this season however Kermorgant has failed to reach those levels. He has scored 8 times in 26 appearances and is often down the pecking order behind Brett Pitman to play the number 10 role behind leading goalscorer Callum Wilson.
But despite finding the season to date ‘difficult’, Kermorgant is determined to impress when his chance comes.
Kermorgant told the Daily Echo…
“It has been a little bit difficult for me, Just when I had started to feel good I unfortunately got my red card and I have been on the bench quite a lot since then.
“The decision definitely cost me but that is a part of football. Injuries and suspensions happen and when you miss games people get the chance to play in front of you.
“It is difficult to complain when the team is winning. You just have to make sure that you do well when you come on, even if it is only for 10, 15, maybe 20 minutes.
“I am disappointed but will keep working hard to get back my place in the starting XI.”
