LEICESTER CITY HAVE sacked manager Nigel Pearson despite his feat of keeping them in the Premier League, the club announced on Tuesday.

“The Board of Directors recognises the success Nigel has helped to bring to Leicester City during his two spells in charge of the club, particularly during the last three and a half years,” said a statement on the club’s website.

“However, it has become clear to the club that fundamental differences in perspective exist between us.

“Regrettably, the club believes that the working relationship between Nigel and the Board is no longer viable.”

Leicester finished 14th in the Premier League last season after a late surge saw them avoid relegation.
