Jason Euell has revealed he was abused by an AFC Wimbledon fan after Charlton’s 2-1 win on Saturday.
Euell, who played for both clubs, was in the directors’ box at the Cherry Red Records Stadium.
He is Charlton U23 boss and also an assistant coach for England U18s.
Euell posted about the weekend incident on Twitter. He wrote: “I have always had support from AFC Wimbledon fans, as a player and now as a coach.
“I was there today as Charlton played AFC and I was shocked, when at the end of the game, I was verbally abused by a ‘AFC fan’ as a “m****r f******g traitor’ in front of my 11 year old son and other young children.
“Whilst I know frustrations run high at games, this was absolutely unjust. A fellow parent (a mum] confronted the guy and told him to watch his mouth and language around kids, and how totally unnecessary it was and abusive. His reply was ‘whatever, he is anyway’.
“Really?? This may be accepted at some grounds, but I never thought this would be the case at Kingsmeadow.
“As always, when AFC play next I will be looking out for their result and with fingers crossed that they’ll manage to avoid the drop.”
