Eddie Howe will take a break from management after an emotional Bournemouth departure.

There may be clamor for his signature this summer, but Eddie Howe is reportedly in no rush to decide on his next club as he looks to take a break from management following his departure from Bournemouth. .

The Cherries’ five-year spell in the top flight ended on the final day of the season, and after meeting with the board to discuss his future, Howe decided to part ways less than a week later.

Howe’s departure signals the end of an eight-year rollercoaster, which dragged his boyhood club up the English football ladder after returning for a second spell in the hot seat in 2012. A successful period in their history.

Despite the disappointing end to his tenure, the 42-year-old’s reputation remains intact, and he is expected to land another top-flight job without any problems at some stage. Crystal Palace were heavily linked, with Roy Hodgson’s future up in the air after the end of the season.

After such a dry season, though, it’s probably no surprise to hear he’s feeling a little spent. According to The Mail, Howe is not keen to jump straight into management and will step away from football to regroup and regain his appetite for the game.

It’s unclear how much time he plans to take off, but at the very least, it seems safe to say he won’t be putting his name in this summer’s managerial merry-go-round. In addition to Palace, Newcastle are looking for a new manager with Steve Bruce’s future uncertain, while Watford – who left the Premier League to join Bournemouth – are looking for a new permanent boss.

Former Brighton manager Chris Hughton has been tipped as the favorite to replace Howe at the Vitality Stadium.
