I've changed - Pearce

Interim England manager Stuart Pearce confirmed he regretted his racist jibe at Paul Ince 17 years ago and insisted he is a changed man now.

During one stormy encounter between Nottingham Forest and Manchester United, Pearce clashed with his England team-mate Ince and the heated exchange included the use of an insult from Pearce that would certainly land him in very hot water if it was uttered now.

At the time, Pearce apologised, and he said on Thursday: "It's certainly something I regretted at the time. What you were and what you've said 17 years ago is certainly no reflection of what you are today. It was something I apologised for at the time, a one-off mistake."
