Arsenal legend Ian Wright has taken to social networking site Twitter to remind his followers about an incident that Nigel Pearson was involved in earlier this season.
Leicester City manager Pearson has been hitting the headlines over the past few days for a confrontation with a journalist.
Following the Foxes’ 3-1 to defeat to Chelsea at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League on Wednesday, the Englishman lost his cool and called Ian Baker of Wardles Press Agency “ostrich", "stupid" and “daft” (as reported by BBC Sport).
Pearson apologised to the journalist on Thursday in a press conference and was quoted as saying by BBC Sport: “I apologise for last night, Ian. I wanted to do it straight away in front of the cameras.”
It was quite an interesting scenario, and former Arsenal striker Wright was following it like everyone else who is a Premier League fan.
The former England international made the following post on Twitter, referring to an incident which occurred back in February.
Been a strange season for Nige! Still can't get my head around this one pic.twitter.com/86Ogkhqbjj— Ian Wright (@IanWright0) April 30, 2015
During the Premier League game between Leicester and Crystal Palace at the King Power Stadium, Pearson grabbed James McArthur by the throat after being knocked over on the touchline by the midfielder.
The 51-year-old then helped McArthur up before preventing the player from returning to the field by grabbing his shirt.
