Alan Knight has left his job as Pompey goalkeeping coach.

The Blues legend returned to the club in January following John Keeley’s decision to join Michael Appleton at Blackburn.

Initially staying until the end of the season, he became a permanent member of the backroom team following Guy Whittingham’s appointment as manager.

However, a Pompey reshuffle has seen Knight today leave the role.

He will now take up an ambassadorial position with the Blues.

A club statement reveals Knight has left for ‘health reasons’ with the issue of hip and knee problems.
