Burton Albion manager Jimmy Floy Hasselbaink isn’t expected to be becoming the next Charlton Athletic manager according to Burton Mail. There has been no approach for the Dutchman, who was also linked with the Rotherham United job earlier this season.
It is certainly no surprise to see Hasselbaink linked with higher profile jobs in higher divisions. He made an immediate impact at the Pirelli Stadium, earning promotion after taking over early last season. In this campaign, he guided The Brewers to the summit of League One, which resembles the highest ever league position in their history.
The Addicks are on the search for a permanent successor to Guy Luzon, who was sacked after a 3-0 defeat to Brentford last Saturday. Karel Fraeye has since been installed as Interim Head Coach, and is in the running to replace Luzon in the long-term. Former Cardiff City and Wigan Athletic boss Malky Mackay is another name being strongly linked to the role.
Hasselbaink, a former Charlton player back in in the 2006/07 season, isn’t expected to be leaving the Staffordshire outfit anytime soon. Recently the club acknowledged that clubs will express an interest in their manager, given how successful he has been in such a short period of time. Nevertheless they aren’t worried about him departing in the immediate future at least.
