‘He showed tremendous bravery and courage’ – Harry Arter hailed for heroic Man United display

first_imgJunior Stanislas has hailed Bournemouth teammate Harry Arter as ‘remarkable’ for his performance against Manchester United.Arter started for the Cherries on Saturday despite the death of his newborn daughter just days earlier and was outstanding as he helped his side secure a famous 2-1 win.“He showed tremendous bravery and courage to go out there and play,” said Stanislas, speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“As soon as we heard the news, we were all around him, giving him calls and messages and supporting him in training as well. But to deliver a performance like that under the circumstances was remarkable.”Stanislas scored the opener against United direct from a corner as Bournemouth, winners over Chelsea earlier this month, picked up another prized Premier League scalp.On his goal, the ex-West Ham man admitted: “I never meant to score it. I meant to put it in the box but the manager said to try and get as much whip and pace on the ball as you can and thankfully it has gone in.”The win over United stretched newly-promoted Bournemouth’s unbeaten run to four matches and moved Eddie Howe’s side up to 14th.“We are going into every game confident now,” added Stanislas. “Morale within the group and staff is very good. We are enjoying it and looking forward to the next one.“We have got pace on the counter and can cause problems and upset teams.”last_img read more
