Powell on a horrible chapter in Charlton's history

Chris Powell recalls the 'horrible' Duchatelet era, the surprise arrival of the useless 'Polish Pete' (cost €800,000) and the departure of Yann Kermorgant (supposedly overweight):

Powell says that Roland was just totally the wrong ownership for the club. The arrival of goalkeeper Yoann Ulian-Thuram caused particular friction as the Belgian owner demanded the new acquisition play despite his manager feeling he simply wasn’t good enough.   More generally, Powell was told who he had to play and what formations he had to adopt.

He told Duchatelet: 'What you're doing is just wrong for this club, it's just disgraceful, I'm not standing for it.'
