Birmingham City Looking To Snap Up Charlton Athletic Man

Birmingham City manager Lee Bowyer has made it clear that he would love to have Johnnie Jackson join him at the club as his assistant manager, according to a recent report published by London News Online. Bowyer wants Jackson to join him at St. Andrew’s so they could work together in making sure that they help the club witness an upturn in fortunes over the course of their tenure.

Jackson has been appointed as the interim manager on a temporary basis pending when the club will get a permanent candidate who will succeed Bowyer as the hunt continues. Since being appointed as caretaker manager, Jackson has guided his side to just one game so far and he saw his side secure a 3-2 win over Bristol Rovers on Tuesday night in their Championship fixture. However, the result is reportedly not going to automatically confirm his long-term appointment at the club.

Jackson is not a stranger at Charlton and it would not be a bad idea at all if he is eventually chosen as the man that will be the club’s manager for the future. But despite that, Thomas Sandgaard, the club’s owner, could choose to seek a candidate from the outside to become the club’s next permanent manager.

Jackson played for the club as a midfielder back in 2010 where he continued his career path after already playing for clubs like Colchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, and Notts County. He announced his retirement back in 2018 after making as many as 279 appearances for the club. He has been trying to get better all-round performance from his players at Charlton, but he may not be at the club for a long time with reports linking him with a move to Birmingham in the nearest future.
