OSG Prem: Leicester City's Pearson Charged By FA For Fan Outburst

((HT: BBC Sport))

LCFC's boss, Nigel Pearson, has never been one to back down from anything short of a charging rhino. And, then, if that happens the rhino would be in for a battle.

Let's face it, LCFC has been in a rough spot in their first year in the Premier League. And a fan allegedly told Pearson that he was a "twat" from the stands in the loss to Liverpool.

Not one to let those kinds of things go, Pearson responded by telling the fan to "f*** off and die."
Pearson wouldn't apologize, either, for it.

As a result, the FA has charged Pearson:

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has been charged by The FA in relation to his side’s game against Liverpool on 2 December 2014.

It is alleged that during the fixture Mr Pearson used abusive and/or insulting words towards a spectator.

He has until 6pm on 16 December 2014 to respond to the charge.

LCFC Supporter's Club chair Cliff Ginnetta told BBC Sport:

"He should put his hands up, admit he was out of order, apologise to the people and move on, that's all everyone wants," said Ginnetta.
"We don't want to make it a big thing or play it out like a pantomime, we just want to get on with winning games.

"I'm sure the majority do (still support him). People are worried and moaning, but that's football fans, you're never really happy. It's the nature of the beast.

"He is popular but this arrogance spills over sometimes."

All this as the Foxes have only taken 2 points out of a possible 27 in their last 9 matches.
