Watch as Leicester City manager calls journalist 'stupid'

Nigel Pearson launch a series of abusive words towards a reporter that a question that seems not to go down well wit him


Nigel Pearson is in the news again for the wrong reasons after tongue lashing a journalist in his post match conference after losing to Chelsea in Wednesday, April 29 English Premier League game.

Pearson attacked Ian Baker, a reporter for agency , who questioned him about a statement from the manager.

The Leichester City manager had opined that his players have been subjected to unfair criticisms before Baker asked him to be kind of criticism he was talking about.

What followed was a full assault on the reporter, calling him stupid and branding him an ostrich.

"If you don’t know the answer to that question then I think you are an ostrich. Your head must be in the sand. Is your head in the sand? Are you flexible enough to get your head in the sand? My suspicion would be no," the 51-year-old manager asked the reporter.

"I can, you can’t. You can’t. Listen, you have been here often enough and for you to ask that question, you are either being very, very silly or you are being absolutely stupid, one of the two because for you to ask that question, I am sorry son, you are daft," he added before storming out of the press conference.

This is the latest in the episodes of Pearson's questionable behaviour.

Earlier in the season, he called another journalist a p****,  and also sworn at a fan and appeared to strangle a Crystal Palace player during a game.
