Bournemouth have parted ways with manager Jason Tindall after only seven months following a poor run of form, The Standard Sport confirmed on Wednesday.

 “AFC Bournemouth have today parted company with manager Jason Tindall,” Bournemouth said in a statement.

“It is a decision which has not been taken lightly, given Jason’s outstanding commitment to the club as a player, assistant manager and manager.

“However, recent performances and results have fallen well below the board’s expectations.

“We feel a change is needed now in order to give the club the best possible chance of achieving the goals that were clearly set out last summer.

“We would like to place on record our thanks to Jason for his services to AFC Bournemouth over the past 22 years.

“He is someone who is fondly thought of throughout the club, having played an important role in rescuing the club from its darkest days and taking it on the greatest journey it has ever had.

“Jason will always be welcome at Vitality Stadium and we would like to wish him every success for the future,” the statement concluded.

Tindall, 43, was named permanent boss on a three-year deal in August to succeed Eddie Howe, who left following the club's relegation from the Premier League at the end of the 2019-20 season.

Tindall first arrived at Bournemouth as a player in 1998 and went on to make 199 appearances.
