Karl Robinson: Arsenal loanee Stephy Mavididi earns Charlton manager’s praise after first senior goal

Karl Robinson was delighted with Stephy Mavididi, as the Arsenal loanee’s goal secured a 1-0 win over Oldham Athletic.

The 19-year-old has joined the Addicks for a second time, having played five games for the Addicks before returning to the Emirates Stadium due to injury last season.

His superb solo effort proved the only goal as Charlton won for the first time in nine league games.

“That’s his first professional goal, so what a great moment for the young man, explained Robinson.

“Maybe if he’d had come here in the summer he would have six or seven by now. I’m really pleased with him. He works hard. We’ve got to protect him a little but which is why I brought him off on eighty minutes because we know he’s not quite there but I’m really pleased with all the players today.

“(The deal to sign) Stephy was done just before Christmas so that one couldn’t be revoked – we’d agreed with the player so that one was done.”
