Eddie Howe became head coach of Newcastle United in November 2021.
It ended a 15-month break from the game for the 45-year-old, who had made his name at AFC Bournemouth.
Howe was a Premier League manager from 2015/16 to 2019/20 with the Cherries, whom he guided to the top flight for the first time after briunging them up from the fourth tier of English football.
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 them.
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 them to safety despite a 17-point deficit.
They were then immediately promoted in the following season under the guidance of Howe, who then 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.
By the end of the season Howe had achieved automatic promotion to the Championship, claiming the league title two years later, guiding AFC Bournemouth into the Premier League for the first time in their history.
In their debut top-flight season, Howe led AFC Bournemouth to 16th place and earned safety for three more successive seasons, before his team finished 18th in 2019/20.
On 1 August 2020 he left the club by mutual consent, following their relegation to the Championship.
Howe's return to the Premier League with Newcastle proved to be an inspired one, as he comfortably secured the club's top-flight status, and was named the February 2022 Barclays Manager of the Month.
He was later nominated for the Barclays Manager of the Season award.
And 2022/23 proved to be an exceptional season for Howe, who helped Newcastle qualify for the UEFA Champions League for the first time since 2002/03.
