Palace chairman 'hated' Dowie

Palace chairman 'hated' Dowie

Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan was no fan of Iain Dowie it seems despite the current Coventry City manager taking the Eagles into the top-flight in his first season in charge.

Speaking to FHM magazine, Jordan said of the play-off win over West Ham which was the highlight of his time as chairman: 'I don't want to say it, because I hated our manager at the time.

'I didn't like him at all. His manners, outlook and attitude stank.

'And I told him so, after we won the play-off final.

'So what he got promotion? That's what I paid him to do.'

Obviously not the best of friends then! From the outside Dowie's attitude seems spot on and City's players are certainly responding to him.

A complete knobcheese seems to be a part of what it takes to be a chairman at a small club. Maybe he is a failed manager on the playstation.
