Pearson to apologise to Leicester fan over "spat"

Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson is set to apologise to the fan he clashed with during defeat to Liverpool.

In the immediate aftermath of the defeat Pearson admitted to a "spat" saying: "I replied to one idiot in the stands and if he doesn't like what he sees, then don't bother coming."

He then added: "Maybe they ought to think about staying at home. We've worked hard and will continue to do so. I don't like the commitment of my players being questioned." Cliff Ginetta, the chairman of Leicester's supporters club, believes an apology is warranted and would enable Pearson to move past the incident and retain the support of a majority of fans.

He said: "He should put his hands up, admit he was out of order, apologise to the people and move on, that's all everyone wants. We don't want to play it out like a pantomime, we just want to get on with winning games. People are worried and moaning but that's football fans."
