FOR­GET WI­GAN STO­RIES – ROBBO

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - By Matt Wright

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.”

PLANS: Karl Robin­son
