Leicester City have sacked Nigel Pearson! Really? WTF! Could you kindly reinstate him like the last time you fired him?
It's been revealed tonight that Nigel Pearson has been sacked from his position as Leicester City manager.
The club have released a statement on their website revealing the decision was made due to the "fundamental differences in perspective".
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.
