JASON Tindall expressed his admiration for Arsene Wenger's coaching style at Arsenal, stating: "It was a philosophy that we really liked."

Tindall took over from Eddie Howe as Cherries boss on Saturday after serving him as assistant for more than a decade.

And outlining his plans for the team going forward, Tindall, a former Arsenal youth player, recalled trips alongside Howe to watch Gunners great Wenger coach his side during their early days in charge at Cherries.

"When Ed and myself first got involved in management at Bournemouth, we did go and watch Arsenal train a number of times, through contacts that we had at the time," Tindall told afcbTV.

"Arsene was the manager and I don't think anyone could ever criticise the job and philosophy that Arsene Wenger had and brought to this country.

"We were big admirers of him and Arsenal at the time and it was a philosophy that we really liked, believed in and tried to implement here.

"That's certainly the philosophy that this football club has seen over the years and one that we'll try and build going forward."
