Lee Bowyer has got necessary badges to manage Charlton Athletic on permanent basis

By Richard Cawley


Lee Bowyer has got the coaching badges to be able to take the Charlton Athletic job on a full-time basis – if he was offered the job permanently.

The former Addicks midfielder has stepped up from assistant manager at the end of last week after Karl Robinson resigned from the SE7 hotseat.

And Bowyer holds a UEFA B license which means he can manage at both Championship and League One level.

He started with a 2-0 win over Plymouth Argyle on Saturday but has not indicated yet he wants to be considered for the role beyond the remainder of the League One season.

No appointment is expected to be made until Roland Duchatelet’s sale of the South London club is complete.
