Coventry City striker Marlon King says the loss of manager Aidy Boothroyd will not affect his commitment to the club.Having completed a four-match suspension, King's first game under caretaker boss Andy Thorn was the Sky Blues' 2-0 win against Watford. [LNB]The former Watford striker told BBC Coventry & Warwickshire: "I'm contracted to Coventry City and I'll continue to give 110%. [LNB]"All I can focus on is doing well when I pull on a Coventry shirt." [LNB]King added: "He [Boothroyd] brought me here. I've known him a long time but that's football. [LNB]"I can't help what's gone on upstairs. That's out of my hands."[LNB] [LNB][LNB] Boothroyd's presence at the Ricoh Arena was instrumental in the 30-year-old signing a deal with the Midlands club earlier in the season having previously worked together at Vicarage Road. [LNB]But with Boothroyd gone, there are questions over whether the striker will remain at Coventry after the summer. [LNB]In the meantime, with City 17th in the table and 10 points above the bottom three, King is concentrating on helping the club avoid relegation from the Championship. [LNB]Speaking after the victory over his former employers he said: "It's been hard because we've had injuries and suspensions. We've had an up and down season but you can't cry over spilt milk. [LNB]"You've just got to crack on with it and that's what we've done."
