Foxes chief escapes action.
Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has managed to escape an FA charge following an incident that saw him appear to strangle Crystal Palace midfielder James McCarthy at the weekend, the Guardian reports.
Pearson’s position with the club looked uncertain after the defeat to fellow strugglers Palace, but despite some confusion he remains in the post for the time being.
And the FA have given him a further boost by declining to charge him for his bizarre actions, and instead write him a letter ‘reminding him of his responsibilities’.
When asked to explain what had happened after the game on Saturday, Pearson responded: “I don’t have to reveal anything, do I? I’m more than capable of looking after myself.”
Earlier on this season Pearson was fined £10,000 and handed a one-match touchline ban for telling a Leicester fan to “f**k off and die”.
