Wise signs pay-as-you-play deal with Coventry

Manager Micky Adams and midfielder Dennis Wise have been re-united at Coventry with both insisting they want to set the record straight on a three-and-a-half-year controversy.

Wise, 39, who left Southampton after the appointment of George Burley as manager in December, is expected to go straight into the Sky Blues squad to face Derby at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday after arriving on a pay-per-play deal running until the end of the season.

The former England midfielder last encountered Adams at Leicester when Wise was dismissed in September 2002 after a pre-season altercation which left defender Callum Davidson nursing a fractured cheekbone.

And Wise said: 'We need to get something straight here - I've always been good friends with Micky and we're good friends still.

'People say Micky Adams sacked me at Leicester, but he didn't.

'Micky tried to help me as much as he could at Leicester and it was the other people involved in the situation who ensured it turned out as it did.

'But the Leicester thing has gone, it's past now.

'If you take the situation as a whole, what went on was slightly deeper than what has come out so far and I've never had a never, ever had a problem with Micky.'

And Adams added: 'If you want to find out the full story you'll have to wait for my autobiography but I've always stated I wanted that situation to have been handled differently.

'Dennis knows what really happened behind the scenes.

'In essence it was a disciplinary thing which I thought I had dealt with until other people decided they knew better than I did.'

And Adams also rebutted suggestions Wise's managerial credentials - earned at Millwall and then at Southampton - make him an ideal candidate as a replacement should results take a downturn.

'If I didn't have confidence in my own ability as a manager then I wouldn't have signed Dennis would I?' retorted the Sky Blues chief.

'I can understand lesser managers than myself would not have done it but I don't have to worry about my job because, in fact, I'm a better manager than Dennis is.

'Dennis Wise is here solely to help me get results between now and the end of the season and make me an even better manager than I already am.

'After that, I understand he wants to join the ranks of the loony men and become a manager too.'

And Wise echoed those sentiments, saying: 'I'm not here to step into Micky's shoes.

'To be really honest, I think this will be my last season as a player and at the end I'd like to go into management.

'But I'm not going to jump at the first opportunity - it will have to be the right thing for me.'
