Johnnie Jackson’s initial contract at Charlton Athletic is for 18 months – with their league finish only affecting the amount of compensation paid if Thomas Sandgaard opts to dispense with his services.

The Addicks appointed the 39-year-old as their manager on December 17. The club added in their statement that Jackson’s deal “automatically renews at the end of each of the next two seasons based on success on the pitch”.

There has been absolutely no indication the Charlton owner Sandgaard is inclined to make another managerial change at this stage. The US-based Dane is believed to be happy with the impact made by Jackson since taking charge.

The contract means Sandgaard is able to make a call on the manager’s job at any stage – with the club’s financial interests protected should a change be required.

It means the Addicks are able to be fluid with decision-making on their boss – the same scenario as at any other club.

Recruitment plans for next season have already begun, with Jackson involved in the discussions. The club’s long-term strategy involves building a core of players so that eventually only a few improvements are needed every window rather than a wholesale reshuffle.

Sandgaard is also determined to obtain category one status for the club’s academy – which he believes will allow even more young players to come through and impact the first team.

Sandgaard has the final call on recruitment but has input from Jackson and his son Martin Sandgaard, appointed director of analysis in December.

Those plans are then executed by director of recruiting Steve Gallen.

The club would not recruit or retain any players that Jackson is unhappy to proceed with.
