Leicester City Supporters Club Give Reaction on Nigel Pearson Sacking

Cliff Ginnetta from the Leicester City Supporters Club gives his reaction to the sacking of Leicester City Manager, Nigel Pearson.



It was revealed last night that the first team manager Nigel Pearson had been sacked from Leicester City Football Club.  On the club’s page an official statement said:  “The Board of Directors recognises the success Nigel has helped to bring to Leicester City during his two spells in charge of the Club, particularly during the last three and a half years. However, it has become clear to the Club that fundamental differences in perspective exist between us. Regrettably, the Club believes that the working relationship between Nigel and the Board is no longer viable.”


“Leicester City’s owners, Vichai and Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, and the Board of Directors would like to place on record their thanks to Nigel for the considerable contribution he has made during his time with the Club and wish him well in the future. Craig Shakespeare and Steve Walsh will take charge of first team duties while the Club begins its recruitment of a new manager.”
