EUELL’S EAGER TO AID ADDICKS
JASON EUELL is champing at the bit to turn Charlton Athletic’s fortunes around after the former striker joined the club’s first-team coaching staff on a temporary basis.
Euell joined the Addicks in 2001 in what was then a club record fee of £4.75m, going on to spend five years in SE7 before returning for the League One title-winning 2011/12 campaign, finishing his playing career at the Valley.
The 38-year-old then took up a role as under-16 coach and was quickly promoted to his position as under-21s boss in September 2013, helping a number of academy graduates up into the Addicks’ senior squad.
And now he will work alongside interim head coach Karel Fraeye and his assistant Wim De Corte as interim first-team coach after they were placed in temporary charge last Sunday evening following Guy Luzon’s dismissal.
“I’m very appreciative of being asked,” said Euell, who made 171 appearances for Charlton during his playing days, scoring 39 goals.
“I’m excited about the task ahead. I’ve been involved with the club for a long time and have become a fan myself, so it’s an honour to take on the challenge.”
