Charlton Athletic owner Thomas Sandgaard has sent a message of reassurance to fans after last night’s 4-2 defeat to Burton Albion, which has drawn a positive response from many supporters of the club.
The Addicks saw their run of six league wins on the bounce ended by Gillingham on the weekend and were shocked by relegation battling Burton last night.
Charlton struggled to get past early defensive errors and allowed the Millers to claim what is just their second League One win of the 2020/21 campaign.
Following the disappointing performance and result, Sandgaard took to Twitter last night in an attempt to reassure the Valley faithful.

The Danish businessman became the south London club’s owner in the summer and on the back of a spending spree late in the transfer window, the Addicks’ form has been much improved since.
Question marks remain over his ownership of the club following legal challenges from Paul Elliott but it seems Sandgaard is keen to continue the vocal social media presence he has had since he first revealed his interest earlier this summer.

Thomas, you could take our club to the champions league final within 3 years and it still wouldn’t compare to the day you saved our club and became owner of this club. It’s a privilege to lose a game during our first season with you as our owner

We’ve had a very good run. We cannot and will not win them all. This team is still a quality squad and will get the points along the way. Ignore the negative tweets Thomas. True fans realise where we are and where we were.
You saved us.
We are in this together.#cafc

Under par performance but I think the players deserve credit for where we are in the league as well . The future is bright that’s the most important thing

We can’t win them all! Onwards and upwards!
