Supporters backing under-fire Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson

Leicester City Supporters Club chairman Cliff Ginnetta insists the fans are fully behind manager Nigel Pearson following the altercation with another fan after the QPR defeat, reports Sky Sports.

Pearson admitted to having a “spat” with a Leicester City supporter after Foxes lost 3-2 away to fellow newly-promoted Queens Park Rangers, and suggested critical fans shouldn’t come to watch the club in the future, which has led to a backlash from the supporters.

“He should put his hands up, admit he was out of order, apologise to the people and move on. We don’t want to make it a big thing, we just want to get on with winning games. (After the QPR defeat) there was no booing or shouting, they were applauding them off. The fans are right behind him and he has to remember that. He is popular but this arrogance spills over sometimes,” said Ginnetta.
