Nebojsa Vignjevic has turned down the chance to be the new manager of Charlton Athletic, acccording to the South London Press.
The Serbian was expected to be announced as the club’s new boss today, but it now looks as though the Championship strugglers will have to run a recruitment process after being rejected by the 47-year-old.
Interim boss Karel Fraeye won just two of his 14 matches in charge and, after Tuesday’s 5-0 thrashing at Huddersfield, the Belgian has been sacked by the Addicks, who are currently three points from safety and without a win in nine league matches.
Vignjevic is currently the boss of Hungarian side Ujpest, who are part of Charlton owner Roland Duchatelet’s network of clubs. But when news broke that he would be replacing Fraeye at the helm it sparked fury among their already disillusioned supporters, who are unhappy at the way the club has been run since the Belgian businessman completed a takeover two years ago
