Sins Of The Son: Leicester City Boss Nigel Pearson Sacked Over Son’s Racist Sex Tape

share on:

Leicester City have sacked manager Nigel Pearson.

Pearson’s son, James, was one of three players sacked by the club for making a racist orgy video while in Thailand, and the sack is said to be an aftermath of the incident.

A statement issued by the club had stated that the board’s relationship with Pearson was “no longer viable”, but the BBC reports that he was fired for non-footballing reasons.

“There is no doubt that the image and the reputation of the club in their homeland of Thailand has been damaged by the behaviour of, among others, the manager’s son James on the ‘goodwill’ tour to Thailand,” the BBC’s Pat Murphy said.

Pearson had lead the Foxes to 7 wins in their last 9 games, helping them to avoid relegation and winning the Premier League manager of the month award.
