    Charlton appoint ex-Cardiff boss Russell Slade as their new manager

    Joe Jones

    Charlton Athletic have appointed former Cardiff City boss and head of football Russell Slade as their new manager.

    The 55-year-old, who has also managed Yeovil Town, Brighton & Hove Albion and Leyton Orient, has put pen to paper on a three-year deal at The Valley.

    Slade replaces Jose Riga, who resigned as head coach on 7 May after the end of the Championship campaign, in which the Addicks finished in 22nd place and were relegated to League One.

    "I am very pleased to be appointed manager of Charlton, a club with a fantastic tradition and history," Slade told the club website.

    "I was attracted to Charlton as it has great facilities, passionate fans and a very successful academy. This is a hugely exciting opportunity and I cannot wait to get started."

    The Addicks, who enjoyed a stint in the Premier League a decade ago, employed three different managers as they ended their four-year stay in the Championship this year.

    Club owner Roland Duchatelet has made six managerial changes since he bought the London club in January 2014, and Charlton fans held a series of protests aimed at the Belgian businessman earlier in the season.
