According to Sky Sports, Lee Bowyer is keen to speak to QPR about taking the manager role, although neither he nor Charlton have been approached by the R’s yet.
The reports come in the wake of The Evening Standard breaking the news that QPR were looking at the former Newcastle and Leeds midfielder as a candidate to take the helm at Loftus Road, so there is understandably some concern amongst the Addicks faithful that there could be some truth in it.
Bowyer has done a fantastic job since being appointed permanent manager in September 2018 and has guided the London outfit to the League One play-off places despite ongoing uncertainty surrounding his and a number of the players’ futures.
Watch the best fails from the world of indoor football in the video below…
The 42-year-old is emerging as one of the brightest young managers in England this season and he surely fits the bill for QPR, although it would be a huge shock if he was to ditch Charlton now, when they are so close to Wembley and possible promotion.
Here’s what the Valley faithful had to say on Twitter…
How has Lee Bowyer not been given a contract before now!! Something needs to be done to get the rat out!! Destroying the club more and more! ROLAND OUT!!#cafc

At the end of the season, yes I’d understand. Right now, no. I’d very annoyed with him and hold a grudge. After everything we’ve been through, to leave like in the position we’re in. Missing out on a chance to win promotion with us. No way would I accept and be ok with that.

I wouldn’t blame Lee Bowyer leaving #cafc as he has been shafted like every other Charlton Manager ! When are the fans going to wake up and realise we are finished under RD !? If we weren’t going for promotion there would be protests every home game for new owners

Not a chance. He has always said how he wants to get the club back to where it belongs. Not a bloody chance
