Charlton Athletic announce appointment of new manager Russell Slade

Charlton Athletic announce the appointment of Russell Slade as the club's new manager on a three-year deal.

Charlton Athletic have announced the appointment of Russell Slade as the club's new manager.

The 55-year-old has taken charge of the newly-relegated League One club just 28 days after he was appointed 'head of football' at Cardiff City.

Prior to the promotion, Slade was head coach of Cardiff for almost two years, but has now signed a three-year contract with the Addicks, who began searching for Jose Riga's replacement after the club dropped out of the Championship with a 22nd-place finish.

"I am very pleased to be appointed manager of Charlton, a club with a fantastic tradition and history," Slade told the club's official website.

"I was attracted to Charlton as it has has great facilities, passionate fans and a very successful academy. This is a hugely exciting opportunity and I cannot wait to get started."

Chief executive Katrien Meire added: "We're delighted to have agreed terms with Russell. We don't underestimate the challenge of getting Charlton back into the Championship. We believe Russell is the man to help us achieve this and, with the help of everyone involved in the club, ensure that Charlton have a successful 2016-17 campaign.

"Russell has vast experience in the division and is a two-time League One Manager of the Year. He joins us as manager on a long-term contract and his appointment represents the start of an exciting new era at the club under his guidance."

Slade has taken charge of almost 800 professional matches during his 20-year career in management.
