CHERRIES boss Andoni Iraola believes Tyler Adams has to make the same mistakes his teammates have already learned from to understand the team’s system of play.

Adams made his full debut for Cherries on Saturday, the United States captain putting behind him a year of injury troubles with 90 minutes against Everton in a 2-1 win at Vitality Stadium.

It was just the third appearance Adams has made in red and black, a hamstring issue thwarting his playing time following a summer move from Leeds United.

In the early stages of the contest Adams could be seen in constant discussion with his teammates, exchanging gestures pointing to what positions he should take up.

Head coach Iraola believes that with time and experience Adams will soon be fully up to speed with Cherries’ tactics.

He told the Daily Echo: “He has to make mistakes.

“The others also have learned making mistakes and correcting from there.

“And he wants to go for all the balls.

“And sometimes you have to keep more discipline to keep the possession, keep to your side, keep your spaces, cover the things that you have to cover.

“But, he's very instinctive and he wants to cover a lot.

“He has to work on these things.

“But it's good that he can improve while he's having the minutes.”

The Basque boss also believes that Adams’ talkative nature will prove beneficial to the side, highlighting his leadership qualities.

Iraola restarted: “Tyler has been always like this.

“He's a captain with the national team.

“Even in the trainings, he’s going to be arguing, if he’s losing, he's not gonna be happy.

“He will be demanding with the others. And this is a very good thing to have in the team.”

Adams also appeared to take up a much deeper role than Lewis Cook, more distinctly playing as a number six.

In the Ryan Christie and Cook axis in midfield, their pair often played in line with each other.

“Tyler played the six and Lew played a little bit more forward,” explained Iraola.

“But at the end you have to adapt the team to the players you have.

“So I know that is not going to be Lew doing the same things as Ryan is doing.

“They are comfortable in these scenarios.

“But Lewis was playing in the in the eight position and Tyler just a little bit deeper.”
