Alan Pardew leaves The Valley

Alan Pardew has left his position as Charlton manager by mutual consent, the club announced on Saturday night.

Richard Murray, chairman of the football club board, said: "On reflection of results so far this season, and looking at the future challenges for the remainder of the campaign, it was agreed by both parties that Alan would leave the club with immediate effect.”

The end of Pardew's 23-month reign at The Valley came after the Addicks, without a win in eight matches, slipped into the bottom three of the Championship following a 5-2 home defeat to Sheffield United.

Phil Parkinson, previously assistant manager, will act as Charlton caretaker-manager and will take charge of the Addicks for the first time against Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road on Tuesday night.

Pardew was appointed Charlton manager in December 2006, succeeding Les Reed, when the then Premier League club faced a battle to stay in the top flight, but was unable to prevent relegation.

No further statement will be issued by the club at this time.
