Charlton Athletic owner Roland Duchatelet is not prepared to sell the football club, despite heavy protests from supporters, according to London Evening Standard.

A large demonstration took part at The Valley before and after the 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest on Saturday, a result which leaves the Addicks situated inside the Championship relegation places. They however only one point behind Rotherham United, who remain just outside the danger-zone. The Belgian arrived at the club in January 2014 and fans have been unhappy with his decision making and general running of the football club ever since.

A video of the fan demonstration can be witnessed below.

Former Chief Executive Peter Varney has supposedly shown an interest in assisting the club search for a potential new investor. However it would appear that his services are not required, with Duchatelet seemingly not being prepared to budge on his stance to remain at the helm.

Charlton have now gone eight matches without a victory and are still managed by Karel Fraeye, who is officially still the Interim Head Coach. He was installed following the clubs decision to fire Guy Luzon in October.

Duchatelet elected to sack Chris Powell shortly after he took over the club, with the former manager recently suggested he would consider a return to The Valley. Jose Riga and Bob Peeters have also been hired and fired by their fellow Belgian compatriot.
