Cape Town - Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe deserves to manage a top Premier League club, according to former West Ham and Everton star Tony Cottee.

Cottee has been impressed by what he has seen from the young manager and would like to see the Englishman in charge at one of the title challengers in the near future.

Cottee told the Daily Echo: "I'm a big fan of Eddie, I think he has done a great job and he's an English coach as well, which is brilliant.

"I like the way he handles himself, he's very good with the media. It's one thing talking a good game but you also have to get results and he has done that as well. Tactically, I think he gets things right.

"Although he might not like me saying this, I hope he goes on to coach one of our top clubs because we need the English coaches to come through and they are few and far between at the moment.

"When a big job is talked about such as Arsenal and he is linked with it, that shows how good a job he's done."

During his first spell at Bournemouth, Howe led the team to promotion from League Two.

He took over at the Cherries for a second spell back in 2012, helping them earn promotion from League One, and two seasons later they won the Championship to earn promotion to the Premier League.
