Karel Fraeye has been sacked by Charlton Athletic after suffering a 5-0 hammering at the hands of David Wagner's in-form Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night.

The Belgian boss refused to address the press after the game - in which Duane Holmes scored his first professional goal and Nahki Wells reached double figures for the season.

Charlton now lie second bottom in the Championship.

Fraeye presided over 14 matches since taking over Guy Luzon last October, and lost eight times, while Charlton are without a win in the last ten.

A statement from Charlton revealed that the search for a replacement has already begun at the Valley, and it is believed Serbian Nebojsa Vignjevic is poised to take over.

While David Wagner proclaimed the evening "perfect", Addicks skipper Johnnie Jackson branded his own team's performance "disgraceful" and vowed to reimburse the away fans who travelled to Yorkshire.

He tweeted: “I know words are cheap but on behalf of myself and the players, I want to apologise for tonight. It was disgraceful and you deserve better. We are going to reimburse fans who travelled up to support us. I will arrange this with the club and they will let you know how to be refunded.”

Goalkeeper Stephen Henderson, who faced up to the media following the final whistle and took responsibility for the second goal - scored by Wells - declared the game an embarrassment for him and his teammates.

He declared: “I feel numb and a few players are unable to speak.

“It’s embarrassing really, we didn’t have our first shot until the 92nd minute. I’d like to apologise to our travelling fans. I know they think I won’t mean it but the real fans will know I genuinely want to apologise for that shocking performance.”
