The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY JC REPORTER

FOOT­BALL GUY Lu­zon in­sists he would love to man­age in England again, de­spite be­ing sacked by Charl­ton Ath­letic.

The Is­raeli de­parted fol­low­ing a woe­ful run of re­sults that fea­tured seven de­feats in his last nine matches.

The club told Lu­zon of their de­ci­sion fol­low­ing Satur­day’s 3-0 home de­feat against Brent­ford, which fol­lowed an iden­ti­cal re­sult against Pre­ston North End.

Lu­zon said: “I would like to carry on in England if I have the chance be­cause it is the base of foot­ball in the world.

“The at­mos­phere, the fans and the men­tal­ity of the peo­ple — it is un­be­liev­able. I would be more than happy to con­tinue here.

“I can say that all through my pe­riod, the fans were fan­tas­tic.”

Lu­zon,40,be­moaned­in­juryprob­lems for the team’s strug­gles this sea­son.

“I thought I would get the time to bring the re­sults again,” he said. “I’m dis­ap­pointed be­cause the squad we have has the qual­ity to play great foot­ball and get re­sults as we did last sea­son.

“It’s very dis­ap­point­ing that we’ve not had the play­ers to get the re­sults. In the end I had to use a lot of play­ers from the academy.

“But I don’t want to take the fans for granted. They were re­ally great and sup­ported me all through the games.

“I love them and loved be­ing part of this great club. It was a re­ally great ex­pe­ri­ence and they will al­ways be in my heart.”

Karel Fra­eye has taken tem­po­rary charge of Charl­ton who lie 22nd in the Cham­pi­onship.
