Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson remains in hospital after Blackburn Rovers draw

LEICESTER City manager Nigel Pearson remains in hospital after falling ill before his table-topping side's 1-1 draw at Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

But Pearson, who chose to watch the match before making his way to hospital, is said to be in 'great spirits'.

A statement from Leicester reads: "Following concerns expressed over the weekend from fans and media in relation to our manager, Nigel Pearson, the club would like to reassure supporters that Nigel is very well and in great spirits.

"On Saturday morning, Nigel was suffering from sickness, however he wanted to oversee our fixture against Blackburn Rovers – where the club extended its unbeaten run to 17 games.

"After the match, Nigel took the decision to seek medical advice and to attend hospital for tests, as a precautionary measure. He remains in hospital at this stage and will undergo his final tests on Monday morning.

"The club would like to extend its thanks to the staff at Blackburn Rovers for their assistance on Saturday and to our fans for their concern for Nigel."

Second-placed Burnley's 3-0 win at Charlton Athletic on Saturday reduced the gap to Leicester to five points.

The two teams meet at Turf Moor on Saturday.

Totally agree, this is mainly due to be given time and backing from the board. Good work Leicester City

Bit of a shock to read this, watching his side play such excellent football on Saturday he showed that he has the makings of a pretty good manager, hopefully it's not serious and he is back to full health as soon as possible.
