Leicester manager Nigel Pearson has apologised to the journalist who he called an ostrich.
The Foxes boss took exception during a post-match press conference to being asked what criticism of his players had upset him over the season and hinted he felt his players had been given unfair criticism this season.
If you don't know the answer to that question then I think you are an ostrich. Your head must be in the sand. Is your head in the sand? Are you flexible enough to get your head in the sand? My suspicion would be no."

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has defended Leicester boss Nigel Pearson after he was branded a bully for a bizarre press conference in which he labelled a journalist "an ostrich".
Pearson received widespread disapproval for his outburst at a reporter following the Foxes' 3-1 defeat to Chelsea at the King Power Stadium last night.
But Allardyce has leapt to the defence of his fellow manager.
When you are down there dealing with the pressures that come upon in terms of staying in the Premier League, I think it is a huge pressure for everybody to continue to work under that situation and come through it. What surprises me is this condescending attitude about what should happen to Nigel that I have been hearing about this morning. People have been talking about bullying and stuff like that - what a load of rubbish. It's an outburst. Simple as that, plain and simple."
