“Charlton are disappointed to announce that Guy Luzon will not be able to take charge of the team at Watford on Saturday due to issues with his UK work permit.” (more)
You couldn’t make it up could you.
After Guy Luzon took training on Wednesday and Thursday, Ben Roberts and Damian Matthew will now select and prepare the team tomorrow at Watford. Luzon will sit in the stands. Hopefully the club have arranged him a ticket.
With Luzon publicly working this week, as shown in official club videos’, I wonder if Charlton will now face punishment as obviously Luzon wasn’t allowed to work. And we have a qualified corporate lawyer as CEO!!
Heaven help us if his work permit gets turned down. I don’t know what parameters there are for ‘head coaches’ but for non EU players they are very stringent.
Of course the Home Office could be blamed, and no doubt will be, but to announce it at 8pm on a Friday night just about sums up the club’s communication and mismanagement at the moment.
Oh well…. Damian Matthews and Ben Roberts Red & White Army.
