Charlton manager Karl Robinson has paid tribute to Richard Murrary amid ongoing takeover talks.

Murrary, who has come under fire from Addicks fans for his involvement with the unpopular Belgian regime, has been acting like a chief executive since Katrien Meire left the club in the New Year.

And despite fan backlash towards the Valley director, Robinson is grateful to the former Charlton chairman. 

Speaking after the Addicks’ 1-0 win over Bury, he said: “Let me talk about Richard Murray - what a man. He’s been unbelievable for me - I want to thank him publicly.

“He’s been there, he's guided me and supported me. He’s been on the phone to myself and [head of recruitment] Steve Gallen every night.

“He’s got different things going on in his life and he's still putting his life on hold for this football club.

“So whatever the difficulties or frustrations or whatever people think, here’s a man who wants this football club to do well. I can’t thank him enough for what he’s done for me over the last two weeks.

“I think we might do something [give a takeover update] early next week.

“We’ll make an announcement on what’s been going on. But we’re united and you can see that. You can be proud of the people who are employed by the football club.”
