Charlton midfielder has worked with Burnett at both Daggers and Fisher Athletic.

Former Dagger Danny Green believes Wayne Burnett is the right man to take the club forward.

Green featured for Charlton in their 2-0 pre-season friendly win against Dagenham on Tuesday night and enjoyed a rousing reception.

And though his former boss at Daggers, John Still, has since departed, he has every faith that Burnett will do well in the hot-seat, having worked with him at both the Daggers and Fisher Athletic

“Wayne and his whole coaching team are the right people to take this club forward,” said Green.

“Having worked here with him and while I was in non league at Fisher I know they are all good at what they do. Wayne is definitely the right man and everyone has just got to believe in him.”

It was the 25-year-old’s first return to the club since leaving in June 2011 for the Valley and it’s a club he’ll always hold close to his heart.

“It was emotional. I have got a lot of friends here,” he added. “When you used to play for Dagenham you call it a family. There are a lot of family and friends here so it’s lovely.

“Once you’re a Dagger, you’re always a Dagger, so to speak. Wayne’s taken over and I’m sure he’ll continue that and play his own way of football. But it’s a great club, I love it.”
