Nigel Pearson Leaves Leicester

It has now been officially confirmed by Leicester City, manager Nigel Pearson has left the club.

After two seasons in which Pearson led City promotion from Division Three and then into the Championship play-offs he is leaving for Championship giants Hull.

The following statement was issued by Milan Mandaric: “We were greatly surprised to receive the initial approach from Hull. The past few years have been a turbulent time for both me and the supporters at Leicester City.
We have been striving to get a degree of continuity at the Club; however, Nigel has done a fantastic job for us and it would have been wrong of us to deny him the opportunity to speak to another club if he wished.
After speaking to him, we have reluctantly agreed that if he wished to pursue this opportunity at Hull, we would permit it. I am deeply grateful to Nigel for everything he has done for the club. He has put together the foundations of a strong squad and it is now up to us to find a manager to build on those foundations.”
