Bournemouth winger Jordon Ibe eyeing further development

Bournemouth winger Jordon Ibe insists he is starting to feel more confident with the south-coast club and has vowed to keep fine tuning his game.

The 21-year-old joined the Cherries in the summer of 2016 for £15million from Liverpool after struggling to earn regular gametime at Anfield.

Ibe was hoping his switch to Bournemouth, who are priced at 2.75 to be relegated, would help to get his career up and running, however, he found it hard to settle during his debut campaign.

The winger has started just one Premier League game so far this term and he was restricted to an appearance from the bench in Friday’s victory over Brighton.

Eddie Howe introduced Ibe into the clash at the Vitality Stadium with 65 minutes on the clock and Bournemouth trailing 1-0 following Solly March’s strike for the Seagulls.

Ibe played a huge role in turning the game around as he laid on two assists for Andrew Surman and Jermain Defoe to hit the back of the net and wrap up a 2-1 victory.

The England Under-21 international insists he is feeling much more confident this season and hopes he can continue to demonstrate that on the pitch.

Ibe told reporters: “I’ve been working on stuff in training and confidence comes with it if you’re playing well.

“I’m feeling confident but I don’t want to get cocky because I’ve still got a long way to go.

I want to score and get assists and I want to learn from this game. ‘Next week, it’s back to training.

The manager says we have to train how we play so I have to keep perfecting on the training ground and hopefully it’ll show on the pitch.”
