MacAnthony: Leicester have showed the way

Published Add your comment

Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony believes the achievements of Leicester this season prove Darren Ferguson had to go.

Posh were promoted automatically from League One behind Leicester last season and the Posh owner believes the Foxes have set the benchmark for what they should have achieved this term. Nigel Pearson's side are in sixth place while Posh lay bottom and MacAnthony is far from happy at the gulf.

He said: "Leicester were nearly pipped to the League One title by us last year and they spent the same money as us in the summer but they are in the top six and we are bottom. They started as we should have started this season.

"So that is why we need a new manager. It worked for Barnsley and it will work for us."
