FORGET WIGAN STORIES – ROBBO
RUMOURS are swirling that Karl Robinson is in the frame for the Wigan job, but the Charlton boss is adamant he’s more than happy at the Valley. Wigan look set to be relegated from the Championship and currently have Graham Barrow as interim boss following the departure of Warren Joyce.
Robinson has overseen the Addicks’ decline into mid-table obscurity this season but has successfully stopped a brief flirtation with relegation over the past couple of weeks.
And the Liverpool-born manager – whose family still live in the North – is focused only on improving Charlton during the summer.
“When you’re from the North and a job comes up half an hour from home then people will speculate almost immediately,” said Robinson, 36.
“It is not something I’ve heard anything about. I’m fully focused on Charlton Athletic and I’m already making plans for next season.
“In football, you can never say never, but I am very happy where I am.
“I want to make sure I get to the summer and get players in the team to make this great club really competitive. That has got my full attention right now.”
