Assistant head coach Wim De Corte has left Charlton.

The 44-year-old Belgian joined the Addicks when Karel Fraeye was appointed as interim boss last October.

After the former Gent academy coach was axed by owner Roland Duchatelet in January, De Corte stayed on under Jose Riga.

The new-look backroom team could not change Charlton’s fortunes and the club were relegated to League One in April.

News Shopper understands that following Riga’s resignation on the final day of the season, De Corte was asked to stay on in SE7 as a coach.

But, he told the Addicks hierarchy he was leaving and never met new Charlton boss Russell Slade.

The Addicks manager is yet to announce who will join him in the dugout for the upcoming campaign.
