Astrit Ajdarevic refuses to comment on future at Charlton
Astrit Ajdarevic has refused to comment on his future at Charlton despite admitting he is enjoying his time at the club.
Ajdarevic, 23, is on loan at Charlton until the end of the season but, when asked, refused to comment on whether he would stay in south London past this summer.
However the former Swedish U21 international did say he was keen to play a part in helping the club avoid relegation to League One.
“Life at Charlton is good - I am playing more and trying to do something different,” he said. “I am trying to help the team and this is a great bunch of guys.
"I'm enjoying being here - I’m not enjoying where we are but I knew it was a challenge before I came here.
“I am trying to do my best and I know all the lads are doing the same as well.
“As long as we are out of the relegation zone I am happy and everyone else is happy.”
The Addicks were beaten 3-0 by Burnley on Saturday afternoon and Ajdarevic admitted that he was impressed the club sat second in the Championship.
“I don’t want to lose, the team doesn’t want to lose and neither does anyone else at this club so we are pretty disappointed but Burnley are a good side,” he added. “It’s tough but I’m happy that we have another game on Tuesday so we will just have to go and do our job and try and get the three points there.
“We’ve been working hard and had some good results but we have to put our hands up because we played a really good Burnley side today.”
Charlton play Nottingham Forest on Tuesday evening and Ajdarevic is expecting another tough game as Billy Davies will be looking for a reaction after his side’s 5-0 loss against local rivals Derby on Saturday.
Forest haven’t won in their last seven and slipping out of the play-off places, while Charlton still sit one place above the relegation zone fighting for survival so it will be a game of vital importance for both teams.
“The may have had a wake up call but we lost 3-0 as well so we need to wake ourselves up,” said Ajdarevic.
“It is not going to be easy because they have something to prove to their fans after losing the derby.
“We have to go there and believe because if we don’t then we may as well do something else so we will go up there and put on a performance.
“No ones wants to drop out of the Championship so we have good belief and we obviously have a new gaffer that has come in with new ideas and his way of playing.
“He believes a lot and he is trying to get it in our minds that we can do it and I think we will.”
