Comes just weeks after Pearson was reportedly sacked then immediately re-instated.
Nigel Pearson’s future as Leicester City boss is still a major doubt as the club prepare to face Everton at Goodison Park.
The Daily Star reports that Leicester are now identifying potential replacements for Pearson as the club look to revamp their hierarchy and change the position of manager to that of ‘head coach’.
The news comes just two weeks after Pearson was supposedly sacked as the boss of the Foxes by one family member of Leicester City’s Thai owners before being reinstated in a few hours by another.
It was thought following this strange move, Pearson’s position was now secure and he would continue on as boss.
However, with this latest development the Star claim that Pearson is now considering his position and believes the recent events have created an uneasy atmosphere at the club.
One Leicester source told the paper that Pearson had been “hung out to dry”.
Despite the uncertainty over his future, you can expect the Foxes to put in a battling display against Everton as they look to rescue themselves from Premier League relegation.
