first_img1 Charlton owner Roland Duchatelet has abandoned plans to appoint Nebojsa Vignjevic as the Championship club’s new manager.Vignjevic was all set to be unveiled by the Addicks on Thursday following their decision to end interim boss Karel Fraeye’s miserable three-month reign.The Serbian is currently in charge of Ujpest, the Hungarian club also owned by the Duchatelet family.But Ujpest have now confirmed Vignjevic is staying put after Duchatelet backtracked on his decision to appoint another unknown foreign boss amid fears of a huge fans’ backlash.The billionaire Belgian businessman has employed five different managers since he took over Charlton in January 2014, all from within his network of clubs across Europe.None of those appointed have lasted long and the latest – Fraeye – has left the Addicks deep in relegation trouble after a run of nine games without a win.Supporters have been left dismayed by Duchatelet and chief executive Katrien Meire’s running of the club and staged a huge protest earlier this month outside The Valley boardroom.Duchatelet, who has only been seen at The Valley once since completing his takeover, was warned by club figures he risked increasing supporter unrest by bringing in Vignjevic.That forced him into a rethink and talkSPORT understands he is now looking to bring in a boss with experience of British football to try and appease supporters and rescue the club’s season.
