Following the departure of Bob Peeters as Charlton Athletic manager, the club have moved swiftly to implement temporary caretaker managers as the search for Peeters replacement continues, the club have confirmed.
Bob Peeters was relieved of his duties as manager of the South London club following the 1-0 home defeat against Brighton and Hove Albion on the weekend. Peeters had previously been under massive pressure despite the positive start to the season that Charlton initially had.
Whilst the search for a permanent manager continues, Charlton have looked to first team coach Damian Matthew and goalkeeping coach Ben Roberts to look to guide Charlton back to form.
Executive Katrien Meire told the club website: “We feel this is the right decision for the club and I have asked Damian Matthew and Ben Roberts to take temporary charge. I have no doubts they will do an excellent job taking care of the side for the time being.”
The club official went on to tell the club website that: “We know how important it is to make sure this next appointment is the right one because I understand that this club needs and deserves a head coach who can plan and take charge for the long-term.”
There have been rumours already in relation to the next manager of the club. The bookmakers have named Guy Luzon as odds on to replace the Dutch manager at the helm of the club. Luzon has never worked in English football and most recently managed Belgian side Standard Liege. He is currently unemployed.
