AFC Bournemouth attacker Lys Mousset has insisted that he is happy on the south coast and fully respects manager Eddie Howe.
The 20 year old’s comments come just days after he was quoted as criticising his lack of first team opportunities since his move to England for a reported fee of ?7.3million from French club Le Havre in June.
Mousset is yet to start a single game for the Cherries and instead has played a total of 88 minutes in the EFL Cup against Morecambe and Preston and 23 minutes in the Premier League against Sunderland and Arsenal.
Speaking to French media outlet Mousset was quoted as stating…
‘Between the project they offered me and what`s happening, it`s completely different. I came to Bournemouth to play and all I`m doing is spending time in the stands, without any explanation from the manager.
‘You can say that`s football, but I really have the impression of wasting my time, of being in a dead-end.’
However two days after the comments were published by Paris Normandie, Mousset has spoken to afcb.co.uk and said…
‘I am very happy at AFC Bournemouth and have a lot of respect for the manager, Eddie Howe, I am a young player, I am still developing and learning and this is the best place for me to do that.
‘I only joined Bournemouth in the summer and this is just the start of the journey here for me.
‘I am training hard every day and I am ready to take my chance when it comes.’
‘That’s hilarious… talk about being ‘spoon-fed’ the answers to give!
It’s so blatantly a put-up job that it’s comical. No pretence of Lys having a chat and in passing responding to the reported comments in the French press. – Join the conversation here.
