Leicester Sack Pearson

Premier LeagueLeicester have sacked manager Nigel Pearson – despite guiding the team to Premier League survival. In a statement, the club said a working relationship between Pearson and the board was “no longer viable”. Leicester won seven out of their final nine top flight matches at the end of the season to stay up. Pearson had a number of controversial moments – including when he bizarrely called a journalist “an ostrich”.
