Richard Cawley of the SLP has tweeted that Chris Powell is to make a statement via the League Managers' Association (LMA). This is not an unusual course of action following a dismissal as it allows managers to use the LMA's facilities and advice. Nothing has been posted on the LMA website yet, but should something appear, a link will be provided.
The statement is now available here: Powell. It is the sort of dignified statement one would expect which makes clear his devotion to the club.
