Charlton appoint Israeli manager

Championship side Charlton Athletic have appointed Guy Luzon as their new head coach, following the dismissal of Bob Peeters on Sunday. The 39 year old has been out of work since leaving Belgian Pro League side Standard Liege last October.

He has signed a contract until the end of the 2015-16 season.

"It is important to have a positive spirit in the team and I want to ensure the entire group is fighting together for the good of the club," said Luzon, who will take charge of the Addicks against Watford on Saturday.

Charlton owner Roland Duchâtelet said: "I think the appointment of Guy Luzon will prove to be a very good one for the club.

"I regard him as an extremely talented coach who has already achieved a lot in his career so far.

"There were a lot of records broken during his first season at Standard Liège and they had the best defensive record in the league.

"He is a passionate coach who will give his all to Charlton and I hope supporters will get behind him."
