'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Club Respond To Media Rumours

The club have effectively given Nigel Pearson the dreaded vote of confidence following press speculation about his future.

In recent weeks following disappointing results Pearson's future was oft speculated about in the press, and the club have now taken the decision to issue a statement concerning said rumours.

lcfc.com have carried the joint statement from Vichai and Aiyawatt Raksriaksorn.

'Since our arrival in Leicester we fully accept that the Club is constantly in the public eye and, as such, will be a constant subject of media scrutiny and debate. For that reason, we adopt a policy in which we do not feel compelled to respond to a media agenda. However, given the recent unwarranted and inaccurate speculation in relation to our manager, we wish to set the record straight in the most unequivocal manner.

'Nigel has and continues to retain our total support in helping us to deliver our stated long term aim of achieving footballing success. Nigel is key to what we are trying to achieve. Like all supporters, we have been hugely encouraged by recent successes on the pitch. After two excellent away victories, Saturday marks an opportunity for us all to again join together and create the best possible environment to help Nigel and the players continue to deliver more results.'

Nigel Pearson himself added.

'I returned because of the long term vision the owners have for Leicester and I share their ambition. Earlier in the week I dismissed the speculation as nothing more than a minor irritant. My focus is, has, and always will be to deliver results on the pitch. I enjoy an excellent working relationship with the owners and directors and all my energies and those of my staff are totally focused on Saturday's home game with Bristol City.'

A very clear and concise statement of support for Pearson, and it has come during a good spell of results for the club, but many will see it as the dreaded 'vote of confidence' so the only way to answer that really is make it five on the bounce tomorrow.
