Bournemouth striker Benik Afobe has admitted that it took a good conversation with Eddie Howe to get him back on track earlier in the season.
The 24 year-old admits that he "lost his head" earlier this season after a pre-season injury kept him out of the first team. Previous to that, he made a solid start to his Cherries career after arriving as a £9 million club record signing. He explained that this resulted in him not training as hard as he could have done, but a meeting with Eddie Howe brought him back to the fold. "It affected me in that I was quiet around the house and I am quite a bubbly person... My chat with the manager was important because it showed he cared. He could have just left me to one side and said he didn’t want me in and around the changing room." However, he feels that he is being rewarded for his work now having started three consecutive games for the first time this season. Mar 20 - 5:17 PM
