Charlton Athletic rebuffed by manager target



Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has declared that he is not interested in the vacant managerial post at Charlton Athletic, according to sources at Sky Sports News.

Charlton Athletic have been searching for a new manager since they parted ways with Russell Slade earlier this week.

Slade was only in charge at The Valley for 16 games and leaves the club with Charlton in 15th position in League One.

Nigel Adkins and Chris O’Loughlin had been linked with the job before Hasselbaink was mentioned as a candidate earlier today.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has been available since he was sacked by Queens Park Rangers for a combination of poor results and an unfavourable style of football.

Ian Holloway has since come in as his successor at Loftus Road while the Dutchman is still out of a job.

And the former Burton Albion boss is not interested in the vacancy at Charlton, according to Sky Sources.

Sky Sources understands that Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink would like to take some time away from the game before assessing his options and returning to management.

Russell Slade’s assistant manager, Kevin Nugent, will assume control for this weekend’s game against Port Vale in the meantime.
