Jones not worried about Charlton's reputation with the axe

Nathan Jones has told the Football League Paper he is concerned about the club's reputation for axing managers.

'I know all about the lifespan of a manager,' he said.  'Unless your name is Guardiola or Klopp, it isn't long.'

'I've shown a bit of longevity if I'm allowed to make certain decisions and that's the thing I'm excited about here.  If certain things on recruitment and environment need driving, that's the role of a manager.  If I don't want to sign a player, then we won't'  (Doesn't augur well for our technical director).

'There are good people here, with real scope to build and really establish ourselves as a big football club.'

Jones turned down a chance to manage Rotherham.

Jones was also interviewed for The Times today.  He said: 'It is impossible to say that Charlton can do what Luton have done ; what we can do now is get enough wins so we are not in trouble.  Then we can build quickly from there, although how quickly we can build is not clear.'

'My first impression this week is exactly what I knew.  It's a young group, an energetic group that needs lifting and a bit of guidance. '

'You can't be ranting and raving constantly because that doesn't help those in the dressing room.  We have to look at what we did well and what we could do better.'
