Charlton boss Karl Robinson has revealed that there is “still no real date” for the club’s takeover.

Addicks director Richard Murray said a takeover was “a few weeks away” on February 28.

But today, Robinson was told that the wait could go on before Roland Duchatelet sells up.

Speaking after Charlton’s last-gasp defeat to Blackpool, Robinson said: “I’ve heard today that it could be a lot longer than two weeks. So we've just got to get on with it.

“I don't know what it is, whether it’s the people coming in, I don't know where they're at, I don't know where it is at. But I was told this week and then that week. We keep having to soldier on.

“We’re put in a very difficult position on a daily basis. But it’s me being honest. I’d love to build something properly but how can you build something when you don't know what corner you're turning?

“Great things are built on stability and foundations. We’ve created a good mentality around the place.

“Once you build that, you need something to take you on to that next level. Everybody is just waiting, but how long can you wait? People’s careers are going down the pan. It’s as simple as that.

“I was told that it’s completely up in the air, it could be next season, in the summer, it could be a month, it could be in two weeks. I don't know.

“As frustrating as it is for you, try and be the man who has to speak about it on a daily basis. Whoever is buying the club, come on.

“For the benefit of the people who support us, the players, this is something that needs to be sorted out. I can only tell you what I know. I don't massage an ego and I don't lie. There’s still no real date.”

Robinson believes the delay of the takeover is affecting the future of the club and its players. 

Star midfielder Ahmed Kashi is out of contract in the summer. 

Robinson added: “I wish my holiday was the same length as the two weeks as I was told. Two weeks is 14 days but our CEO left on December 29, our financial director has gone, but I was told we would sell the club in January. 

“That was seven or eight weeks ago at the beginning of January. We thought we’d have somebody in by mid-January to push us forward and give us some funds for the team. I’m in mid-March when I’ve been told it’s nowhere near. 

“People will be disappointed, maybe more disappointed about that than the Blackpool result. But I’m gutted about our performance. That’s the most important thing. 

“We can’t use external excuses for that. I can’t use anything, once that whistle goes, no takeover, nothing can affect what you do on that pitch. It’s gone. 

“But when the players work in the course of the week, who are they trying to impress? Ahmed Kashi’s contract is up at the end of the season, the loan players, Jay Dasilva, can we get him back? Can we start making in roads? I can’t. I have no one to answer those questions. 

“Steven Gallen is doing the best job in football. He’s head of recruitment and can’t do any recruiting. In the owner’s defence, he’s trying to sell the club. So it’s a case of he’s done that, but it’s no good to us in relation to what corner we turn next. 

“Maybe I’m being a bit brave coming out and being this honest. But something needs to change before Saturday [against Fleetwood]. People need to know where we’re at. 

“I have to take responsibility for today. They under-performed but it’s my job to get it right. Let’s just get this [takeover] sorted. 

“We were rubbish tonight. We let them down tonight. But you've got players who need things sorted when you've got a family and kids and not knowing what’s going to happen in the summer, it can put you in a predicament. 

“Players have got an option, they don't have a clue what they're going to do with it. I can’t give them an answer. We've got U23s players who we can’t make a decision on. 

“We don't know what the budget is going to be, we don't know what the finances will be, and you don't know what league the club is going to be in too. 

“You still want to know which direction the club is going before you make a decision. So if I speak to Ahmed Kashi and say ‘we’re going to do this’, he wouldn't know what’s happening. So it’s a difficult one.”
