Leicester City Manager Nigel Pearson Caught Telling Fan To ‘F**k Off And Die’ (Video)

Nigel Pearson is being urged to publicly apologise to a Leicester fan after appearing to tell the supporter to “f**k off and die” during Tuesday’s defeat against Liverpool.

Pearson had already come under pressure for griping about Leicester fans’ general unrest, telling reporters that they “shouldn’t bother coming” if they are going to criticise his team, who are currently knee-deep in a nine-game winless quagmire.

“I replied to one idiot in the stands and if he doesn’t like what he sees, then don’t bother coming,” Pearson grumbled.

“Maybe they ought to think about staying at home.

“We need support, their [the fans’] support. We’ve worked hard and will continue to do so.”

However, it’s all blown up again today after fan-filmed footage emerged of Pearson snapping back at a heckling fan, who called him an “utter twat” from the terraces during the Liverpool loss.

Be warned as this video does, of course, contain some iffy language – albeit slightly muffled…

A spokesman for Leicester confirmed the club are investigating the incident in-house, explaining:

“Once the facts have been determined and suitably corroborated, we will decide what next steps, if any, should be taken.”

Strangely enough, we’ve made it to December without a single Premier League manager losing their job so far.

We know; it’s weird.

Given the above, how long do you think the peace is going to last?

    gave as good as he got , the so called fan should get behind the player and manager not shout abuse , don’t need ‘fans’ like that

    Love the simplicity of that abuse though! There’s no hiding from it! He could have laid on a tirade of effing c’s and it would never have hit home like that did.

  3. Jim says:

    Fans who work all year to pay for a seasonticket and who will continue to show up no matter what should always be allowed to say whatever they please about the people representing their club on the pitch or in the coaching staff. This ‘positive vibes’ only nonsense is just further pacification of the match-day experience. What they really want is day-trippers only.

  4. Jarren says:

    Indeed, gamblino.

    Turns to fan, “go away and cease to exist”, turns away from fan.

    That’s some pretty measured abuse, when he could have went apeshit.

    What he actually says is ‘that was not offside’
