Former Charlton first-team coach Chris O’Loughlin has returned to Sint-Truiden.

O’Loughlin, who is well-known to Addicks owner Roland Duchatelet, arrived at the Valley in November.

He was offered a deal to stay until the end of the 2016/17 campaign.

Charlton finished 13th in League One last season, and News Shopper revealed O’Loughlin’s contract was not extended.

And now, he has re-joined Duchatelet’s network club Sint-Truiden as an assistant coach.

O’Loughlin, 38, bossed the Belgian club in 2015, before being replaced by Ivan Leko after just one season.

Charlton’s backroom staff has had a major revamp this summer, with Simon Clark, Richie Barker and O’Loughlin leaving SE7.

Addicks boss Karl Robinson has made Lee Bowyer his number two, while club captain Johnnie Jackson is a first-team coach.
