Charlton Athletic have appointed Belgian Bob Peeters as their new head coach.
Peeters played internationally for Belgium and has managed clubs in his own country, including Cercle Brugge, KAA Gent and most recently Waasland-Beveren.
Forty-year-old Peeters, who also spent two years as a player at Millwall, will work alongside Charlton first-team coach Damian Matthew but former assistant manager Alex Dyer has left the club.
Dyer was brought to the club by Chris Powell in January 2011 and the pair led Charlton to the League One title in 2012.
Peeters replaces Jose Riga, who was on a short-term deal and ensured Charlton retained their Championship status last season, following Chris Powell’s sacking.
His playing career included 13 caps for Belgium, with the striker scoring four international goals.
In his homeland he played for Lierse and Racing Genk and played for Dutch sides Roda JC and Vitesse, inbetween a spell playing for Millwall, where he made 25 appearances and scored three goals.
