Some Charlton fans have taken to Twitter to react after spotting Chris Powell as part of the England coaching set-up.
The former Charlton and Huddersfield manager became part of Gareth Southgate’s staff at the start of September as part of the BAME programme, a move designed by the FA to “solve the challenge of under-representation”.
Powell managed the Addicks from 2011-2014, following a playing career that saw him make 214 appearances for the south Londoners.
The 50-year-old was appointed at The Valley in 2011 and went on to guide Charlton out of League One and into the Championship as champions, although he was later sacked by Roland Duchatelet just days after reportedly agreeing a new contract with the club.
After seeing their former boss on the bench for England as part of Southgate’s staff, a number of Charlton fans took to Twitter to react.
Let’s take a look at what some of the Addicks supporters said…
