London, June 30 (IANS) Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe feels the club’s English Premier League relegation scrap is tough but they can win their last seven games and get back on track.
Bournemouth are in the relegation zone on goal difference. They have taken just one point from the past 18 available.
“I am hurting from this situation, I’m not going to lie. It’s painful,” said Howe as quoted by BBC.
“I’m using all of those emotions to help direct the team in the way we need to go.”
Howe said he believes the team can win all the remaining games.
“There’s no part of me that’s feeling sorry for myself or despondent,” said Howe.
“It’s a motivated, fully energised, fully focused manager that the players are getting to get results and to achieve our objectives.
“I believe we can win every game we’ve got between now and the end of the season. No game is a write-off.
“We need to start winning and performing very quickly.”
Meanwhile, Liverpool defender Joel Matip will miss the remaining matches of the Premier League season due to a foot injury, the champions said on Tuesday.
Centre back Matip sustained the injury during Liverpool’s goalless draw with local rivals Everton earlier this month.
He told Liverpoolfc.com: “This season I will be not back on the pitch but for next season, I hope I’m going to be quite early a direct help for the team.”
