first_img1 Leicester City’s latest signing was lured to the King Power Stadium by the manager he describes as a “very nice chap”.Nigel Pearson was involved in a handful of spats last season – ‘ostrich-gate’ being the most memorable – but he was all sweetness and light when he was convincing defender Christian Fuchs to join from Schalke.“I followed them last season, and it was an impressive escape at the end of last season,” Fuchs told the club’s website.“Everybody knows about it, everybody saw it and everybody’s talking about it – the great escape.
