Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd has hit out speculation of an alleged bust up with star striker Marlon King and suggestions that the Hornets will no longer wear a blue away kit.
The Watford Observer had reported rumours of an alleged bust up between Boothroyd and King after the Jamaican international was left out of the squad to face Charlton.
"Two things have appeared in the local press recently which really, in my opinion, were only there to sell the paper, the first one being my alleged 'fall out` with Marlon King," said Boothroyd in his weekly emails to fans on the club`s database.
"Let me say to everybody now that Marlon has been injured and let me quash all rumours about a fight, a transfer or indeed that Marlon is emigrating to New Zealand to live life as a shepherd. It`s all absolute and utter nonsense."
There had been reports, which stemmed from the message board of the club`s official site, claiming Boothroyd did not like the midnight blue away strip, which was released in July, after Watford played in an all-yellow kit at Charlton last Saturday.
However, the Watford boss was quick to deny these reports, and said that he had purchased an away kit for his son.
"Secondly, there is the ridiculous idea that I don`t like the blue away kit," explained Boothroyd. "I have bought it for my own son, it`s a wonderful design and indeed, in my opinion, it gives us the imposing air of one of the world`s greatest dominating sporting powers, the All Blacks."
"As you`ll all know by now, I don`t tend to hold back if I think something needs to be said. I had my plan at the beginning of the season of not commenting every time there was some speculation about us because, if I did, I would never have any time to be a football manager," concluded the no-nonsense Yorkshireman.
