Charlton Athletic manager Lee Bowyer has confirmed he has not been approached about the managerial vacancy at Cardiff City.
The Bluebirds parted company with Neil Warnock on Monday and the Welsh press claimed earlier this week it was between the Addicks boss and Neil Harris, who stepped down as Millwall chief in October, for the vacancy.
But Bowyer is taking a short break in the Champagne region of France.
And he has revealed that he was in the same area in the summer when it was reported that contract talks with Charlton owner Roland Duchatelet had broken down. Bowyer was adamant that was not the case – and ended up signing a new 12-month contract with the newly-promoted Championship club.
Asked about the Cardiff job, Bowyer told the South London Press: “I’ve had no contact.
“I’m in France at the moment. I don’t like coming to this place! I’ve been here twice now, I was also here in the summer when it all kicked off with Roland. I’ve come here again and my phone has gone crazy again!”
See Friday’s South London Press for an exclusive interview with Bowyer.
