Bournemouth remain on the lookout for a new manager, although no appointment is imminent with the process set to go into next week.
Jonathan Woodgate was named as boss until the end of the previous season after Jason Tindall was dismissed and despite a decent run, the campaign would ultimately end in failure as they lost to Brentford in the play-off semi-final.
Therefore, the board have been on the lookout for a permanent manager since then, but no decision has been made, despite strong links to Scott Parker in recent days.
However, TalkSPORT reporter Alex Crook has revealed that there is nothing to announce just yet on that front, as he tweeted a fresh update of the situation.
“Told #AFCB managerial search will continue into next week.”
Whilst pre-season is still a number of weeks away, a further delay will frustrate supporters as they are aware of the big decisions that need to be made.
Another season in the Championship means that some key Cherries players could depart in the summer, with Arnaut Danjuma among those attracting attention.
What club do these 21 former AFC Bournemouth players ply their trade at now?
This is not the news that Bournemouth fans would’ve wanted and it suggests the club are not making the progress they want as they look to make a decision.
Having said that, there’s no need to panic or rush right now and the only important thing is to ensure that they appoint the right man, because this is a crucial appointment for the club moving forward.
So, it seems as though it’s going to be another interesting week or so for Bournemouth and it will be interesting to see when a decision is made.
