Robinson installed as new Charlton manager

Karl Robinson has been confirmed as Charlton’s new manager.

Former Milton Keynes Dons boss Robinson, 36, replaces Russell Slade, who was sacked by the Addicks last week.

“Joining such a huge club with a large, passionate fanbase is a really exciting proposition,” Robinson, who has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract, told the club website.

Robinson becomes Roland Duchatelet’s seventh managerial appointment since the Belgian bought Charlton in January 2014.

Slade was sacked after just 16 league games in charge and left with the club 15th in the League One table.

Robinson added: “I am honoured to have been appointed manager of Charlton and can’t wait to get started.

“I’ve inherited a talented squad and I’ll be doing everything I can to get the club back into the Championship as soon as possible.

“I like my teams to play attractive football and if we all pull together, I firmly believe we can start moving up the table and enjoy a successful season.”

Charlton chief executive Katrien Meire said: “He is a very talented, forward-thinking manager,

“Our main focus is bringing Championship football back to The Valley at the earliest opportunity.

“Karl has vast experience of League One and, having won promotion just two seasons ago, we believe he has the necessary credentials to lead the club forward.”
