Former Crystal Palace manager Iain Dowie entered the witness box in the High Court on Monday to deny suggestions he set out to "concoct a false story" about his reasons for leaving the club.

Dowie, contesting Palace´s £1million compensation claim over his move to rivals Charlton, was challenged by Palace´s barrister to explain discrepancies in his account of what happened.

John Davies QC pointed out he had initially stated at a press conference that he had "no contact whatsoever" with Charlton before his departure from Selhurst Park on May 22 last year and that the first conversation he had with them was two days later.
