Palace midfielder McArthur: Pearson? Time to move on

Crystal Palace midfielder James McArthur is eager to play down his touchline bust-up with Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson.

The Scot wants to draw a line under the incident.

"These things happen in football," he said. "He says it was only a joke. I did not know that at the time but he said it was a joke so I will take it that way and move on."

It isn't something McArthur wants to dwell on.

"There is nothing in it in my part. I am not bothered by it," he added. "You have heated moments in football. Emotions are high. It is not something that is going to play on my mind."
