The Eagles attacker is on loan to Blackpool until January 1.
"I still keep in touch - I texted him after he left and there have been a few that have gone back and forth since," Dobbie told the South London Press. "He has wished me all the best. There is no grudge between me and the gaffer and there never will be.
"He has been fantastic for my career. You never know, we could work together again.
"I was gutted for Ian when he left because I've built up such a good relationship with him. I've got a lot of time for the gaffer."
