Coventry boss has conversation with King on release from prison

Coventry boss Aidy Boothroyd has reiterated his stance regarding Marlon King's future. Boothroyd admits he has spoken to King following his release from prison last week. He also believes the striker should be handed "a second chance" in the game, although he has no immediate vision for that to be at the Ricoh Arena.

"I have had a conversation with him. I spoke to him on Friday just to say I thought that the interview that appeared on Sky was humbling. He made his mistakes and has came out and said that," said Boothroyd in the Coventry Telegraph.

"There is nothing more in it than that. It is all about Portsmouth for us now and for Marlon it is about getting himself back with his family, his wife and his kids and, I guess, re-establishing himself in football will come at a later date because I think family will probably come first for him now."
