January 10, 2017

As per the Metro, Bournemouth head coach Eddie Howe has admitted that Jordon Ibe has been a ‘disappointment’ following his £15m move from Liverpool to Dean Court this summer.

The 21-year-old youngster joined The Cherries for a club-record fee back in July but has started only 11 of Bournemouth’s 20 Premier League matches so far.

Jordon Ibe was handed a chance to impress in Saturday’s FA Cup match versus Millwall but has found it difficult to shine as Eddie Howe’s side slumped to a 3-0 defeat.

During his interview, Bournemouth manager spoke about the potential and future of young Englishman. Howe said: ‘He hasn’t been a regular in the team and that will be a disappointment for him and for us.’

‘I still feel there’s a lot of potential in there, but obviously he’s got to fulfil that when he gets chances like today.

‘We picked players that we haven’t seen regularly in the Premier League, we gave them an opportunity to express themselves.

‘Individually they are very good players so I was excited to see it. Obviously the reality proved different.’ Added the Cherries boss.
