Lee Bowyer: Charlton manager resigns from his role at League One club

Lee Bowyer has resigned as Charlton manager after three years in charge of the League One club.

Bowyer became Charlton’s caretaker manager in March 2018 following the departure of Karl Robinson, and was made permanent boss six months later.

The 44-year guided the club to a third-place finish in his first full season in charge, beating Sunderland 2-1 in the play-off final at Wembley to win promotion to the Championship. However, Charlton only lasted one season in the second tier as they were relegated the following year.

The club currently sit in eighth place in League One after winning 14 of their 35 matches this campaign.

Bowyer had signed a three-year contract in January last year which would have seen him stay at the Valley until the summer of 2023.
