Description

Leicester have ended Nigel Pearson's controversial reign as manager due to "fundamental differences in perspective" with the club's board of directors. Pearson kept the Foxes in the Barclays Premier League with a superb run of results in the closing weeks of last season but the campaign was marred by clashes with a fan, an opponent and a journalist. In addition, Pearson's son James was one of three players sacked for their part in a sexually-explicit video in which racist language was used during the club's post-season tour of Thailand.
