The news we have been waiting for came today when Johnnie Jackson became permanent Charlton manager signing a deal “which will automatically renew at the end of each of the next two seasons based on success on the pitch for the Addicks.”
I imagine it is that clause that has taken the time to negotiate. Thomas likes to do things differently, and it makes no sense for him to go down the long contract offer and then have to cough up before it has any chance of expiration. See Ipswich Town.
I am happy that both parties and presumably lawyers are happy with the deal and it does give Jacko the security of this season and next.
Great day for players, fans and Jacko.
Charlton Athletic Football Club’s heart beats louder with Johnnie Jackson in it’s blood stream.
