Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has done little to endear himself to both the football media and fans in general this season, despite his side’s plucky battle against relegation.

After the Foxes’ 3-1 defeat at home to Chelsea on Wednesday night, the 51-year-old was once again at his nasty, bullying worst, taking exception to a question from journo Ian Walker before embarking on a bizarre, aggressive, smug and utterly embarrassing rant…

Pearson has the air of a bitter divorced man who takes out his frustrations on anyone he can. Although surely “You are an ostrich” is destined for iconic status.

    Someone asked on Youtube what the question was, to which there was this outstanding reply:

    “Do the players do handstand urination after a defeat”

    What a bullying arrogant nobhead.

    This guy needs a slap. Arsewipe!

    What a dick. As a Leicester fan I’m encouraged by our recent form but the fact is Pearson is lucky to still be in a job. For him to act like that is pathetic. If he was working in Italy, Spain, or pretty much anywhere else he’d have been sacked before Christmas.

  5. What4 says:

    Ok, most journalists are turds. Pearson said the team had taken criticism, and that journo asked ‘what criticism?’, which is a pretty twatish thing to ask. So no, I’m not on the side of the journalist. Pearson had probably been on the receiving end of a lot of stupid criticism from journalists, and he lost his cool. No big deal. If journos can dish it out they should be able to take it too.
