Bournemouth interim coach Gary O’Neil has been impressed by Marcos Senesi in training.
The Argentina international, signed from Feyenoord this summer, has been an unused substitute in Bournemouth’s last two matches against Wolves and Nottingham Forest.
And O’Neil admits Senesi is still adapting to English football.
When asked about coaching Senesi, O’Neil told the Daily Echo: “I don’t think you can look into it too much as in he’s in and around the squad, he’s training well, he’s working hard, as are all the other boys.
“Sometimes when you come from playing in another country, there is some time that you need to adapt.
“The tough results that he was involved in were just one of those things. You’re playing against top sides.
“I don’t think there was any real fault of Marcos attached to it, I think it was just one of those where it was a group thing.
“We’ll be working hard with him to make sure that, when needed, he can help us.”
