Lee Bowyer sticks with Charlton Athletic despite crisis

LEE BOWYER has urged his Charlton players to focus on Championship survival and let off-field matters at the club take care of themselves.

Addicks executive chairman Matt Southall announced earlier this week the board had accepted majority shareholder Tahnoon Nimer’s resignation as a director amid an increasingly bitter dispute since East Street Investments’ takeover was confirmed on January 2.

But Bowyer (pictured), who has since signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract with the club, said: ‘I don’t want to walk away. I could have done that in January.

‘We’ve all worked so hard to get to where we are now and I won’t walk away from it. I want to believe everything will be okay, but everyone knows there are a lot of things that have been going on that are not okay.’
