'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Walsall chairman slams Dowie

After Iain Dowie was quoted recently saying that Coventry City had paid 'just north of 200,000' for defender Scott Dann, Walsall chairman Jeff Bonser has responded angrily.

A statement issued by Bonser on Walsall's official website reads: 'It shows how out of touch Iain Dowie is with reality. He is quoted as saying he has paid 'just north of 200,000' for Scott Dann. For the avoidance of any doubt, Coventry City have paid an initial fee of 750,000, which will be paid in stages over the period of 12 months.

'They will also pay a further 250,000 based on appearances and a significant percentage of any future transfer fee. On top of that there will be payments if he achieves an England cap and if Coventry City gain promotion.

'Dowie's statement raises the question how a person who does not know the difference between 200,000 and 750,000 be managing a football club? It is no wonder that clubs end up in financial difficulties.'
