Charlton have confirmed that interim head coach Karel Fraeye has left the club in the wake of Tuesday’s humiliating 5-0 defeat at Huddersfield.
Fraeye had been in charge at The Valley following the dismissal of Guy Luzon at the end of October but he managed just two wins in 14 matches in all competitions.
Goalkeeper Stephen Henderson was left to face the media on Tuesday night amid speculation Fraeye was to be let go, and the Addicks released a statement on Wednesday confirming his departure.
It read: “Charlton Athletic have relieved Karel Fraeye of his duties as Interim Head Coach.
“The club would like to place on record its thanks to Karel for his tireless work and the many positive contributions he made to the wider football set-up at Charlton.
“First-team coach Wim de Corte, assisted by Jason Euell, will take charge of the Charlton team for the Hull City match on Saturday.
“A search for a new Head Coach has commenced. ”
Ujpest boss Nebojsa Vignjevic has been strongly linked, with Charlton owner Roland Duchatelet also owning the Hungarian club, while it has also been reported that former boss Jose Riga is in the frame.
