Luke Young has called on Charlton to waste no time in finding a new boss.
Charlton Athletic right-back Luke Young has called on the London club to waste no time in finding a replacement for departed manager Alan Curbishley.
The Addicks are currently in the process of interviewing for a new boss, with Preston North End's Billy Davies impressed by the club on Tuesday.
Hull City's Peter Taylor has already pulled out of the race, and former Crystal Palace boss Iain Dowie is now expected to be in the frame having departed from Selhurst Park.
Whoever the number one target may be, Young has now insisted that the club must move swiftly to ensure preparations for next season begin immediately.
"We need a manager as soon as possible. I know the club are interviewing but we need to sort this out as June is only around the corner," Young told The Sun.
"When Curbs left, the club said they would move swiftly but it has not happened like that."
Young is also unhappy with the club's failure to offer him a new deal so far, despite impressing to the extent that he was named as a standby for England's World Cup squad before being hit by injury.
"I have still not had a concrete offer and that disappoints me," Young added.
"We were supposed to talk about this at Christmas."
The Addicks defender is reportedly attracting interest from West Ham as well as former club Tottenham with his future yet to be secured.
