Nairobi, Kenya 23 December 2018 11:16 GMT
Eddie Howe came out to praise double scorer David Brooks against Brighton who went down to 10 men in the premier league game yesterday.
“He showed his quality in both moments,” Howe said of the former Sheffield United man to BBC
“We knew that we were getting a very technical and intelligent player, but he really buys into the team ethic and has a tactical understanding of how the team plays, and an ability to handle the Premier League and not get carried away with his early season success.”
“He had glandular fever at the end of last season and that was probably the reason we were able to sign him, as if he’d stayed fit and kept playing he might have gone beyond us [to a bigger club],” he said.
“They’re two very good goals from David, both totally different, and I’m very pleased.
“He showed his quality in both moments. “He’s certainly ahead of schedule. We’ve been pleasantly surprised. “We knew we were getting a very technical player, a very intelligent player. Perhaps what we didn’t know was how good he would be for the team. “He really buys into the team ethic, the defensive component of the game and the tactical understanding of how we play he has grasped really quickly. “Credit to him for that and also the ability to handle the Premier League and not get carried away with his early season success.”
