Some Charlton Athletic fans have been reacting to a tweet which shares a statement that was allegedly made by the club’s majority shareholder Tahnoon Nimer via his Instagram account, in which he discusses Matt Southall being “removed as a director” of the club.
Charlton-focused journalist Louis Mendez took to Twitter to share an alleged screenshot of a recent post from Nimer’s Instagram account, in which the Addicks’ majority shareholder explains that Southall has been removed from his position “in the correct legal manner”, after being “physically removed from the football club”.
The screenshot of this alleged Instagram post comes after BBC Sport also reported that the chairman had “been removed from the board“ of Charlton’s owners, East Street Investments. In a statement made via Charlton’s official website, Nimer stated that Southall’s removal from the club “is a positive step in the right direction” for the Addicks.

What do we think?
Charlton manager Lee Bowyer recently made his feelings known regarding this public feud featuring the club’s board, telling Talksport that he would rather it hadn’t gone public.
With the Addicks currently sitting in 22nd place in the Championship table, it may be fair to say that this drama concerning the Charlton board may have come at a bad time for fans of the club, who may be concerned about the Addicks suffering relegation from England’s second tier this season.
If Southall’s recent removal from the club’s board puts an end to this public row between members of the club’s board, it may be welcomed by fans who may want the attention of all people associated with the club to be focused on improving results on the pitch, with the Addicks currently sitting in the relegation zone with just nine games left to be played in the 2019/20 Championship campaign.
