Pearson charged for row with fan

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson has been charged by the Football Association after his heated touchline row with a fan.

It is alleged the Foxes boss used abusive and/or insulting words towards a spectator during last week's 3-1 defeat to Liverpool at the King Power Stadium.

The FA had written to Pearson to ask for his observations about the argument and has now acted.

Pearson had refused to apologise. He has until 6pm on December 16 to respond.
