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

Official - Pearson Signs New Deal

Following yesterday's speculation that manager Nigel Pearson had now agreed and signed his new contract at the club following our successful title winning season in the Championship that returned us to the Premier League for the first time in a decade, the club have tonight made the official announcement.

Pearson has signed a new three year deal, and assistant managers Craig Shakespeare and Steve Walsh have also penned new deals, keeping all three at the club until the summer of 2017.

Since he returned to the club for the second time with a League 1 success under his belt, we have made massive progress in the last two and a half years, narrowly missing out on promotion via the Play Offs in 2012-13 when we suffered heartbreak, but we more than made up for that last year with so many records beaten and set as we stormed into the top flight.

Speaking to lcfc.com Vice Chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha said.

'From the first day I met Nigel, I knew he was the man to take us into the Premier League and I am delighted that he has been able to help us deliver that for our fans. He is a man of fine principles, a great leader and he believes in our long term vision for Leicester City, while his qualities in coaching, motivation and player development have been evident in our success on the pitch.'

He adds that Pearson for him is the perfect fit for our owners short and long term ambitious, because Pearson himself shares them passionately.

Having penned the deal, Pearson said himself.

'I have always seen my long-term future, and that of my staff, at Leicester City. On the back of the success we have worked so hard to achieve, I have always been confident that my future would remain here. I feel very proud to be the manager of a Club with genuine ambition, a clear direction in which it wants to go and loyal owners that are prepared to support its development.'

The season is taking shape nicely, now if we can get that all important good start, especially given the fixtures we have been handed, maybe we can achieve more than the only obvious aim for 2014-15 which is staying up to secure a second successive year in the top flight.
