Belgian native Peeters was appointed as manager of the South London club in the summer, and initially enjoyed a fine start to life at the Valley.

However despite their positive start to the Championship season, the Addicks slipped down the table to 14th position in the table.

And following Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at home to Brighton, 41-year-old Peeters’ contract has been terminated.

The writing was on the wall for sometime, and poor performances of late led to an untenable position with Charlton.

First team Coach Patrick Van Houdt and Performance Analyst Guy Kiala have both had their contracts terminated.

A statement on the Addicks official site read:

Charlton have terminated the contract of Head Coach Bob Peeters with immediate effect, the club can confirm.
The contracts of Senior Professional Development Coach Patrick Van Houdt and Performance Analyst Guy Kiala have also been terminated.
Peeters signed a 12-month contract at The Valley in the summer and enjoyed a good start to life in the Championship.
However, given the recent downturn in results and performances the board felt they had to make a change at this time.
The club would like to thank the trio for their efforts and a further statement will be made in due course.’

Charlton currently sit in 14th position in the Sky Bet Championship table, having amassed 31 points from 25 league games.

There is no clear standout manager as to who will replace the departing Peeters, but whoever takes charge will have to hit the ground running to please the Addicks owner.
