Manager Bio

Eddie Howe has been a Premier League manager since the 2015/16 season after guiding AFC Bournemouth to promotion in the previous campaign.

Prior to moving into management, Howe was on the professional books at AFC Bournemouth for eight years before moving to Portsmouth for a two-year spell.

Howe had a loan move to Swindon Town towards the end of the 2003/04 season, but did not feature for the club.

However, the Amersham-born defender re-joined AFC Bournemouth on loan at the start of the 2004/05 campaign and soon made the deal permanent - spending a further three seasons with the Cherries.

The former centre-back retired due to a knee injury in the summer of 2007, but had already started coaching the AFC Bournemouth reserve team.

Howe had a brief spell away from the south coast club in 2008 but was hired as a youth coach before taking over as caretaker manager at the end of the year.

On 19 January 2009, Howe was awarded the permanent managerial job at the, then, League Two club, leading the club to safety despite a 17-point deficit.

The Cherries were then immediately promoted in the following season under the guidance of Howe before he made the move to Championship team Burnley in January 2011.

Howe guided Burnley to eighth and 13th place in the next two seasons before a return to AFC Bournemouth in October 2012.

At the end of the season, Howe had achieved automatic promotion to the Championship before claiming the league title two years later, lifting the Cherries into the Premier League for the first time in their history.

In their first top-flight season, Howe led AFC Bournemouth to 16th place, ensuring at least another year in the Premier League.
