Ghana wideman Jeffrey Schlupp has offered his support to Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson following the Foxes’ loss to Queens Park Rangers.

Under-fire Leicester lost a relegation six-pointer against Queens Park Rangers on Sunday which plunges them further into the mire.

The Foxes ended their extended goal drought with an early effort from Argentine veteran Esteban Cambiasso. They were unable to hold onto their lead, however, and fell behind after an own goal from Wes Morgan and a Leroy Fer finish.

Schlupp scored just after the hour mark and thought he’s earned his side a point, only for Charlie Austin to grab the winner six minutes later.

“The boys are gutted to come away with no points after scoring two goals away from home,” the Ghana international began, as reported by The Guardian, “there are lots of positives from the game, we created lots of chances and hopefully in the future we can convert those chances and turn them into goals.

“You have always got to take positives out of the game, we know what we have done wrong and what we need to work on. We will do that, we will do it together as a staff and get ourselves out of this run and kick on,” he concluded.

The Black Star went on to offer his support for the under-pressure coach: “We have all been in situations and a run of form when things are not going your way,” he began, confidently, “we know how to get out of it and we have a great manager behind us as well.

“He has been in difficult spells before and knows what to do to get us out of it, we have got faith in him and all the other staff and I’m sure we will turn it around.”
