Hull City - Nigel Pearson - Leicester City
Leicester lets him go less than 2 years ago for somewhere in the ballpark of £600,000, he solidifies a team at Hull and is the impetus of a good start to a season that sees us in striking distance of promotion, and Leicester now want to swoop in and grab him for near the same amount they sold him for. I don’t know how business gets done in Thailand but that is not the way anyone I have ever met does business.
Let’s take a closer look at this
1 Pearson was let go from Leicester
2 Pearson is doing well at Hull
3 Leicester is flaunting how much money they are willing to put on the line to secure his return (£10+ million)
4 He will take Craig Shakespeare and Steve Walsh with him
5 Pearson is defiantly the right man for Leicester
6 Odds are that he will also poach promising players
Now Leicester is threatening the smooth transition buy being a bunch of bitches when it comes to coughing up the money that Hull are asking for. Hull are totally entitled to be asking for £1million at least, look at the list, you don’t tell the world you are going to free up £8million and not pay and extra £300,000 for a clean transition, its suicide.
Leicester are going to force Nigel Pearson to leave Hull on his own and suffer the consequences in court while trying to lead Leicester through a possible promotion run. This is all seeming like another huge mistake by Leicester with the victim being Nigel Pearson. Good luck to Nigel, but Leicester’s owners need to wake up and remember they have a goal and it shouldn’t be to create havoc in one man’s life.
I don’t blame Hull for standing their ground on this issue and it will only hurt the Leicester transition, because you know that Hull aren’t sitting on their laurels waiting for this to finish. They have plans and will execute them as soon as all of this is settled.
