I'd Didn't Do My Homework On City - Boothroyd

Last updated : 25 April 2012 By Covsupport News Service

Former Coventry City manager Aidy Boothroyd has admitted that he did not do his homework on the Sky Blues and took the job because the club were a big name.

Boothroyd left Colchester to join Coventry but only lasted seven months before he was ousted in February 2011 after a string of poor results.

Speaking to Glenn Moore of the Independent, Boothroyd, now manager of Northampton Town, said: "To me now it is more important to be working for the right club, and the right person, than it is to be working for a club with a 'name'.

"I didn't really do my homework on Coventry, on the people I was going to be working for. It was 'They're a big club', but I jumped too early out of Colchester."
