eNewsletter

Bob Peeters has been appointed as the new manager of Championship outfit Charlton Athletic.

The 40-year-old has succeeded compatriot Jose Riga, who himself replaced the sacked Chris Powell in March.

Riga was hoping to earn the job permanently after guiding Charlton out of the relegation zone to safety with 7 wins from 16 games.

Peeters last coaching role was at Belgian outfit Waasland-Beveren, and he has also managed Cercle Brugge and Gent.

The former striker, who was capped 13 times by Belgium, also had a two-year spell as a player at Millwall between 2003 and 2005.

Alex Dyer, who was assistant to Powell, will not be part of the new setup and has left the club after after three-and-a-half years at The Valley.
