Ranson explains Dowie departure
Coventry City
Coventry City chairman Ray Ranson has said a difference of opinion over the future direction of the club led to Iain Dowie's departure as manager.

Ranson told the club website: "We did not share the same ideals for the club.

"I felt that to move Coventry City forward towards a more progressive way of operating, I would need a different style of first-team management here.

"My complete attention must now be to identify the right person to take our football activities forward."

Ranson added: "I have set no timescales to deliver the right manager or coach, but rest assured that I will be exploring every opportunity to ensure Coventry City can progress and deliver stability both on the pitch as well as off it."
