Unlike Karel Fraeye, who took little persuading to take the Interim job at Charlton following the departure of Guy Luzon, mostly because old Karel had his head up Roland’s backside at the time, it appears that Nebojša Vignjević was less than happy with Roly’s suggestion that he should leave 2nd placed Ujpest of the Hungarian League and take charge of the laughing stock that is Charlton Athletic.
A backward career step he presumed added to the fact that he would be forced to work with Katrien Meire, so Vignjević said “ne” and who can blame him.
Jose Riga was ahead of Vignjević in the new old coach queue but apparently made too many demands.
In the meantime Meire has located Karel Fraeye, who was apparently still hidden in the laundry basket, and the Interim has made history by being the first Interim manager to get sacked in professional footballing memory.
In the meantime Interim’s assistant Wim de Corte becomes the Interim’s interim caretaker with Jason Euell the Interim’s interim’s caretaker’s assistant.
And we can be relieved to know that Meire and Roly have commenced the search for a new Head Coach. Again.
Sint Truiden, AD Alcorcon and Carl Zeiss Jena plus all Belgium Division 3 clubs – lock up your coaches.
You really can’t make this stuff up.
