Boothroyd Coy On King Speculation

City boss playing down rumours After the raft of speculation suggesting the jailed striker Marlon King is in line to be signed up by Coventry City, Aidy Boothroyd has spoken briefly about the player.King is due to be released from prison soon after serving time for assaulting a woman. He has a string of 14 offences to his name and has been jailed twice, but while at Watford under Boothroyd's management, King had his best spell as a striker.Bothroyd said to the CT of King:, "As far as I am concerned, Marlon was fantastic for me. He scored 23 goals and made Watford an awful lot of money and was a cult figure there and, when he was with me, he behaved himself and was good for me and the club and I think I was good for him, but times move on and a lot of things have happened. "I am perhaps not as quick to point fingers and shout and bawl as other people because I know him, warts an all. Is he on my radar? I like to think that I have a relationship with all the players I have worked with and, if they ever needed anything, I would like to think that I would help if I could.""At this moment in time there is nothing I can do help where he is or where he is going, so my priority right now is to make sure we organise this group of players we have got and go on to do more pleasurable things than in the last few years."
