Bournemouth manager Andoni Iraola has insisted all is well for him behind the scenes, despite a poor start to the season for him and the Cherries.

The Spanish coach has been speaking to La Media Inglesa regarding his time at the club so far after arriving in the summer as a replacement for Gary O’Neil.

He moved to England after building an impressive reputation for himself in Spain, where his work with Rayo Vallecano had impressed many.

The hope was that he could introduce the attacking, exciting brand of football he had developed in Spain into Bournemouth and ensure this season was not another one spent battling relegation.

That’s yet to work out, though, with Bournemouth yet to win a game in the Premier League and their last game before the international break seeing them suffer a 3-0 defeat to fellow strugglers Everton.

Indeed, their only wins this season have come against Swansea and Stoke in the Carabao Cup, something which has naturally led to questions being asked and the pressure being raised on Iraola.

He’s not feeling it yet, though, insisting that behind the scenes all is well, particularly with the new Bournemouth owners.

“I can’t complain. Look, we have literally won two Carabao Cup games against Swansea and Stoke, and people are asking why we haven’t beaten anyone else,” he said.

“But if this doesn’t go well it won’t be because of the level of the club or because that hasn’t been done well. I will not have done it well. The players are the ones who have to make good decisions.

“I am delighted with the reception of the fans. I am convinced that they want us to do well. Up to now they’ve been super respectful of me and the team. Obviously, they want us to win and achieve our objectives.

“We are working well with Richard, the sports director, with whom I have the most contact on a day-to-day basis and Bill, who lives in the United States. It’s more sporadic contacts in that sense. Working here is a delight.”
