After the sacking of Jason Tindall due to recent results, Bournemouth have announced that ex-Middlesbrough and Real Madrid player Jonathan Woodgate will take the reigns.
Bournemouth, now in the Championship, elaborated a project with the aim of returning to the Premier League. The latest bad run has left the team in 6th position and the board decided to take action.
Jason Tindall’s sacking sparked events at the club on Wednesday, and the club were quick to issue a new statement to reveal who will now take over the dugout.

The chosen one is Jonathan Woodgate. As the club indicated, it is as interim boss until the team, calmly analysing the options, chooses the new manager.
A decision that has come as a surprise in England. Woodgate’s only experience as a manager was last season at Middlesbrough. He finished in mid-table in the Championship, but with some worrying results since his arrival: nine wins, 16 draws and 16 defeats in the 41 games he managed. A 21% win rate that has left Bournemouth fans scratching their heads.
Another chance for the ex-Real Madrid player, who is now trying to carve out a career as a manager
