Eddie Howe has left his job as Bournemouth supervisor by mutual consent after its relegation from the Premier League, the membership introduced on Saturday.
Bournemouth was relegated from the highest division on the ultimate day of the season after ending third-bottom with 34 factors.
“Having spent a total of 25 years with the club as both a player and a manager, this decision – made together with the club – is one of the hardest I’ve ever had to make,” stated Howe in an open letter to followers.
“However, although the affection and love I have for this football club will always remain, we collectively feel that now is the right time for the club to go in a new direction.
“Bournemouth will at all times be in my coronary heart, however I firmly imagine now could be the appropriate time for the membership to have a change.”
Howe, 42, managed Bournemouth in additional than 450 video games throughout two spells on the Vitality Stadium spanning greater than a decade.
