Pearson happy for Leicester owners over Premier League promotion

Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson insists there's nothing wrong with ambition.

Pearson played down the story about Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha targeting the top five inside three years, suggesting it was not entirely accurate.

Asked specifically about those reports, Pearson said: "Well - given the way the managerial merry-go-round is these days - if in three years I'm still managing Leicester City, we will have continued to do well.

"There is going to be speculation surrounding clubs and stories will surface. That is part and parcel of it.

"But we are on the same page as a football club in terms of talking with the owners.

"I'm delighted for them because they have invested a lot of time and finance in us to help us achieve our goals and getting into the Premier League. Now, we have to try to establish ourselves."
