David Prutton has stated that he thinks the Cardiff vacancy is something that Lee Bowyer would have ‘a think about’ despite being employed by Charlton.
Neil Warnock was relieved off his duties on Monday evening, and there have a been a few different names rumoured with replacing the 70-year-old.
One of the candidates that has been mentioned on social media is Charlton boss Lee Bowyer. The manager has had a very good time in charge of the Addicks and guided them to promotion last season, before sitting in the top half with the side after 16 games of the current campaign.
It’s yet to be seen whether Bowyer would leave Charlton for a side in the same division, but there is always speculation regarding the 42-year-old’s long-term future at the club.
Would Bowyer be a good appointment?
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Football League World’s Chief Editor Sam Rourke, Prutton said: “It would be a coup, Lee has done very very well. He has ties along way back with Charlton and he’s done wonderfully well to get them into the division and to give them the start that they’ve had.
“Yes, it has been stuttering in recent weeks, but any team that comes up, it has to be consolidation as the first port of call.
Prutton added: “From his point view as a manager and looking at a managerial career, his and Johnnie Jackson’s contracts are still rolling one-year contracts so another thing that could come into it, is if it’s financially secure and he has the opportunity to build the club over the coming years.
“It could be very attractive, he’s done very well to keep the hierarchy chat at Charlton away from the pitch and for people to look at the players.
“If they do come calling, you’d feel it is something he’d have a think about.”
