Boothroyd not keen on King move

King was jailed for 18 months following a sexual assault case brought against him in 2008.

“I have had a conversation with him (King),” he told the Coventry Telegraph.

“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 come out and said that. 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.”
