With Leicester City supporters slowly starting to turn on manager Nigel Pearson following a poor start to the season, West Ham manager Sam Allardyce feels some realism and loyalty is needed, reports ITV
Pearson was lauded after getting Leicester City back into the Premier League in the summer after a 10-year absence, but due to their struggles in the top-flight, supporters have started to lose patience, with the Foxes currently bottom of the league and winless in 11 games.
With West Ham manager Sam Allardyce having been in a similar position himself only a year ago, while now turning the club around this season, he feels the City fans need to remember how far they’ve come in such a short time.
“It is a big adjustment for the fans when they find out it is not that easy any more. Expectation was built even higher when they beat Manchester United 5-3. Leicester fans have not remembered where Nigel has taken the club from and to in a short period of time, so they should show him a bit more patience and a bit more loyalty,” he said.
