CHERRIES legend Marc Pugh has revealed his aspiration to release a cook book after taking social media by storm.

Pugh, who enjoyed a successful nine-year spell at Vitality Stadium, joined Queens Park Rangers last summer.

Since his switch to the London outfit, the tricky winger's cookery exploits have attracted attention, with more than 8,000 followers on his Instagram account thefoodiefootballer.

The 33-year-old's food journey dates back to September 2013 when he was establishing himself in the Championship after promotion with Cherries.

Pugh told the Queens Park Rangers website: “I was a terrible cook when I was younger, really bad. The missus would tell you.

“I saw this course online and it covered a wide range of subjects that I knew would really help me as a player and as a dad.

“Cooking could be my way of helping out at home because the wife had a lot on with breast feeding and things like that.”

Discussing his plans for the future in the world of food, he added: "I definitely want to release a book. It’s high up on my priority list and I have got a lot of content together. I just need to piece it all together. I want people to enjoy seeing my cooking and I’m looking forward to achieving that goal.”
