Nigel Pearson: Confident he will stay in charge of Leicester

Nigel Pearson: Confident he will stay in charge of Leicester

Pearson's position has been the subject of speculation for months following a dismal run of results which almost saw the club miss out on the Championship play-offs.

The Foxes sneaked into the top six on the final day of the season courtesy of Anthony Knockaert's injury-time winner at Nottingham Forest, but their promotion dream was ended by Watford on Sunday in the most dramatic fashion.

Knockaert's injury-time penalty, which would have surely sent Leicester to the final, was saved and it was Watford who sealed a place at Wembley with a goal on the break just 20 seconds later.

Following the late drama at Vicarage Road, Pearson said: "It is a cruel game. That reality is an illustration of how tough it is to be successful.

"It is difficult to take at the moment and there will be a lot of reflection going on over the next few days and weeks.

"But we have to get on with it. We are still in a better position as a football club than we were a year ago.

"We have a lot to improve. It is about results ultimately and about us getting Premier League status.

"I know what needs to be done in the summer and I'm confident I will get the opportunity."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
