Former Charlton Athletic forward Ronnie Schwartz has taken to Instagram to thank the club’s fans for the support that they gave him during his time at the club.
The 32-year-old left the Addicks earlier this week after the two parties agreed to the mutual cancellation of his contract at The Valley.
After joining Charlton in January, Schwartz would have been hoping to make a major impact for the club in the third-tier.
However, the forward struggled to deliver the goods on a consistent basis during the second-half of the previous campaign as the Addicks narrowly missed out on a place in the play-offs.
During the 16 appearances that he made for the club last season, Schwartz only managed to find the back of the net on one occasion.
The forward failed to make a single appearance for Charlton in the opening stages of the 2021/22 season as he struggled with his fitness.
Making reference to his recent exit on Instagram, Schwartz has admitted that he is gutted that it didn’t work out for him at Charlton whilst he also thanked the fans for their support.
“Thanks to all the players, staff and all the people at the club!
“I will forever be grateful for the chance to play in such a big club like Charlton!
“I’m gutted that it didn’t work out.
“Special thanks to all the Charlton fans for the support.
“Will remember that forever.
“That’s it for me – all the best to @cafcofficial in the future!
“Up the Addicks.”

It could be argued that Schwartz’s exit could end up being beneficial for both parties.
Whilst the forward only managed to average a WhoScored match rating of 6.09 in League One last season, there is no reason why he cannot go on to achieve a relative amount of success for another team in a different division.
Meanwhile, Charlton could use some of the money that was freed up from their wage budget following Schwartz’s departure to strengthen their squad in the January transfer window.
Currently 21st in the League One standings, the Addicks will be hoping to kick-start their season tomorrow by securing a victory over Lincoln City.
