My Wife Made Me Do It - Mitchell

Last updated : 13 October 2012 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

Following the negotiations to bring Eddie Howe back to Dean Court, Chairman Eddie Mitchell was quoted on BBC Radio Solent as saying: "My wife persuaded me to try and bring them back. I don't normally listen to her so I had to swing it so that it was my idea so then it was OK. I didn't see why they wouldn't want to drop down to League One and, who knows, we might overtake them [Burnley] soon. The fans were a big factor but the main thing is we wanted the right man to take the club forward".
