Boothroyd sacked by Coventry
FORMER Colchester United manager Aidy Boothroyd has been sacked as manager of Coventry City.
The Sky Blues remain in dangerous territory in the Championship - seven points from the drop zone - and have picked up one win in their past 16 matches.
They have this morning confirmed the departure of Boothroyd, who was in charge of the U’s for just eight months.
A statement on the Sky Blues’ website read: “The board of Coventry City Football Club has today relieved Aidy Boothroyd of his first team duties with immediate effect.
“Assistant manager Martin Pert has also been relieved of his duties. First team coach Steve Harrison and chief scout Andy Thorn will be placed in temporary charge of team affairs.
