ANDONI Iraola admits goalkeeper Neto “hasn’t liked” losing his place to Mark Travers in recent weeks, but insisted he “has been pushing” to get his spot back.

Cherries’ captain Neto had been the club’s clear number one under Iraola this season, before watching on from the bench for the past four fixtures, with Travers given a chance.

Asked how the 34-year-old Brazilian has responded to being left out, head coach Iraola said: “For sure he hasn’t liked it.

“Every time you take minutes from a player, they don’t like it normally.

“But he has been training well. He has been pushing, he is fighting.

“He wants to play, the same way that Mark wants to play.

“I think it is good. In the end, we have to value the position has been good during the season.

“It is a matter of not just Mark or Neto, even Andrei (Radu) when we needed him, he was there and had good games.

“If we would need Darren Randolph, or even Callan (McKenna) now that is training with us, also in training I think they value the position between all the keepers.”

Of Cherries’ 43 fixtures this season, Neto has played 31, Travers seven and Radu five.
