Liverpool are figthing to win the Premier League and Champions League this season but Solanke left Anfield for Bournemouth in January.

AFC Bournemouth unveil new signing Dominic Solanke at Vitality Stadium on January 4, 2019 in Bournemouth, England.

Bournemouth striker Dominic Solanke has admitted he has no regrets about his Liverpool exit despite his former club looking well placed for glory both at home and abroad this season, in quotes reported by the Sun (28 March, page 62).

Solanke joined Bournemouth in January for an eye-watering £19 million fee, as reported by Sky Sports.

Since his departure, Liverpool have continued to fight for a place at the top of the Premier League table while beating Bayern Munich to reach the Champions League’s quarter-finals.


The England U21 international, however, is aiming for game-time rather than trophies at this stage of his career.

Solanke failed to make a single appearance in the first half of the season under Jurgen Klopp but has already played five games in the top flight for his new employers.

It seems the 21-year-old views leaving Liverpool as a necessary decision as he aims to kick-start his career in the top tier.

“I just try and play as much as I can,” said the former Chelsea striker, who joined the Reds in what seemed like a real coup in 2016.

“I’ve loved my time here (at Bournemouth) so far. Hopefully, we can finish the season strongly. We’re definitely doing well.”

Clearly, Solanke has no regrets and with good reason. In Eddie Howe, he has a manager who will put his trust in him and allow the striker to prove that he can make the grade in Premier League football.
