THIS former England international made over 500 Premier League appearances playing for sides like Liverpool and Manchester City.
But he maintains the best dressing room he ever shared was at Bournemouth.
David James says Bournemouth had the best changing room in his career
David James, 52, played for the Three Lions 53 times in a glittering career lasting 24 years.
Starting at second-tier Watford, James spent seven years in the top flight playing for Liverpool.
He then took in Premier League spells at Aston Villa, West Ham, Man City and Portsmouth.
And James also later starred in the Championship for Bristol City.
But the iconic gloveman insists the best changing room atmosphere he ever experienced was at League One Bournemouth.
James joined the Cherries for the 2012/13 campaign — Eddie Howe’s first season in charge.
He played 19 games as Bournemouth secured promotion to the Championship.
And with aces like Lewis Grabban and Tommy Elphick in tow, James reckons Howe created an incredible buzz in the dressing room.
He told Lord Ping: “We had a dressing room of very interesting and lovable characters.
“In fact, the best changing room I’ve ever been in was at Bournemouth.
“We had an amazing harmony. It was bizarre. Every morning we would get changed and train at the stadium.
“There was a lot of banter in there, but you knew that the club was going to be successful because the group of players were so close.”
