New Bournemouth boss 'surprised' by Eddie Howe's departure

New Bournemouth boss Jason Tindall admits he was surprised by the departure of predecessor Eddie Howe and has assurances the club will not conduct a “fire sale” following Premier League relegation. Long-serving manager Howe left by mutual consent on Saturday, August 1 after failing to prolong the south coast club’s top-flight stay to a sixth season. Tindall worked as assistant to Howe for more than 11 years in two spells with the Cherries, either side of a 21-month stint at Burnley.
