Rix eyes Cherries job

19 September 2006 02:42
Former Hearts and Portsmouth boss Graham Rix is keen on the vacant managerial position at Bournemouth. The 48-year-old, who also had a spell in charge of Oxford United as well as time as first-team coach with Chelsea, is keen to get back into the game and feels that the Cherries would be ideal for him. He told the Bournemouth Daily Echo: I'm keen to get back into football and I have watched Bournemouth on a number of occasions. "I feel there is great potential at the club and we will just have to wait to see what happens." Former England midfielder Rix has been out of the game since being sacked by Hearts in March, after just 19 games in charge of the SPL side.
