Off-field incidents cost Pearson his job, says Claridge

Well-known Sport-New revealed, Steve Claridge is convinced that non-footballing reasons led to Nigel Pearson's "unexpected" departure from Leicester City on Tuesday. Former Leicester striker Claridge said: "We often get [situations] in football where you put two and two together and get five, but with this one it's patently clear that it is not a football decision because he's probably never been so strong." He added: "They stayed with him two or three times when they could've quite easily sacked him and no-one would have argued, but they stayed with him. We all applauded that and that decision was lauded at the end of the season, they got their reward and it all looked well.”
