Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has said that he wants to repay the faith shown in him from chairman Maxim Demin.
Howe is in his second spell in charge at Dean Court and the Cherries boss has revealed that he is not considering leaving the club.
This weekend marks the fifth anniversary of his initial appointment and Howe was keen to praise Russian co-owner Demin for the money that he has ploughed into the club and the working relationship between the two.
Howe, a former Bournemouth player himself, has seen the club go from being on the verge of dropping out of the Football League to England's second tier competition.
When speaking to the Bournemouth Echo, Howe said: "Maxim has put a lot of money into the club and a lot of trust in me. He has allowed me to express myself as a manager and that is all you can ask because it doesn't always happen.
"He has given me a licence to run the football side of the club and, although he keeps a close eye on what we are doing, he also lets us get on with our jobs.
"Nothing would please me more than to see us stabilise in this division and eventually look to move up. It may take some time but that is the aim.
"I don't think you can ever look too far ahead in management. You can be well thought of one minute and not so well thought of the next."
On his relationship with the chairman, Howe said: "I am really happy working with the people at the club and working for Maxim.
"I enjoy a good relationship with him and the board. I am in regular dialogue with him and I know where I stand."
