Leicester manager Nigel Pearson has been hit with a £10,000 fine and a one-match touchline ban following his altercation with a fan last month.

The 51-year-old had a personal hearing in front of an Independent Regulatory Commission on Friday after accepting the Football Association’s charge of using “abusive and/or insulting words towards a spectator” during their 3-1 defeat by Liverpool.

Pearson had refused to apologise to the supporter despite calls from the Leicester City Supporters’ Club to say sorry.
