Breaking news

Bournemouth have announced Andoni Iraola as their new head coach, replacing Gary O’Neil who was sacked earlier on Monday.

Spaniard Iraola has signed a two-year deal with the Cherries following the expiry of his contract at La Liga side Rayo Vallecano.

O’Neil was sacked seven months after he was made the club’s permanent manager and helped them avoid relegation.

“We’re so excited to welcome Andoni to the club,” said chairman Bill Foley.

“With his contract in Spain coming to an end this summer we wanted to act quickly.

“He was highly sought after by other clubs across the continent, and his style of play has been an important factor in making this decision. His achievements in Spain have certainly been very impressive and we’re confident that he is the right man to lead our next chapter.”
