THE danger for Eddie Howe is that he will be always be regarded as an up-and-coming coach.

That Howe’s cherubic looks, his unassuming manner and his commitment to refining a progressive passing game shows a manager still learning his trade. Shame, that.

That tag follows the 40-year-old Bournemouth boss everywhere, a convenient excuse for owners of ambitious Premier League cubs to turn to yet another overseas coach when they make their next appointment. The clamour for the next continental coach is never far away.

Despite leading the Cherries to Premier League safety with 16th, ninth and 12th-placed finishes, Howe seems to have fallen off the radar a bit.

The guy’s stock should be sky-high, one of the most talked-about coaches in the modern game after establishing Bournemouth as a Premier League club.

The powerhouses of English football — Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham — should all be keeping an eye on him.
