"The Leicester story is a very good one," says Derby boss Nigel Pearson.

Derby County boss Nigel Pearson said he is delighted with the success his former side Leicester City have achieved after they lifted the Premier League title in May, but is now focused on his new team.

The 52-year-old, who signed a three-year contract with The Rams last week after his dismissal at the King Power stadium last year June, will be hoping he can replicate the success he had with the Foxes at Derby County.

"The Leicester story is a very good one. I'm aware of my contribution and what I have done at Leicester," he said as skysports.com reported.

"It's a fantastic story and I'm genuinely delighted for the players and my ex-colleagues and staff. It's unbelievable. It's right to recognise that. Claudio Ranieri managed with an awful lot of skill. They are my observations from afar.

"But that's the end of the story. I draw a line under that and move on. I had a lot of success at Leicester City. My achievements there speak for themselves.

"I had dozens and dozens of opportunities to talk about it, but that's not something I decided to pursue. It's not my scene."
