Clyne Says Howe Factor Helped Him Choose Bournemouth

Nathaniel Clyne has said that Eddie Howe was the factor behind him choosing Bournemouth.

The Liverpool right-back has been sent on loan to ply his trade at the Vitality Stadium for the rest of the season.

On loan Liverpool defensive ace has admitted that the presence of manager Eddie Howe at Bournemouth has helped him choose the Cherries for plying his trade for the rest of the season. The English right-back has been sent on loan to the South Coast club for the rest of the season having fallen down the pecking order under the tutelage of Jurgen Klopp as he prefers Trent Alexander Arnold in the right-back role all through this season with Joe Gomez as his backup.

Speaking about why he chose Bournemouth, Clyne said, “(Bournemouth) have a great manager and that’s what urged me to come here.”

He added, “I’ve looked at how Bournemouth play and it’s similar to my style.”

Speaking about his injury concerns that led him to miss the majority of the last season and half of this season as well, the defensive ace said, “I’ve gone a whole season-and-a-half without really playing consistent football, which is unusual for me. Knowing you’re fit and can go out there and play but constantly not getting selected is a bit disappointing. I’d rather go out and find another club which would give me the opportunities to play games.”
