Megson enjoys fan reaction

08 Oct 2007 - 11:13:59

Leicester City boss Gary Megson is hoping he has won over the Foxes fans following Saturday's victory over Sheffield Wednesday.

Megson had been given a rough ride by some sections of the Leicester faithful unhappy at the treatment of former manager Martin Allen, who was sacked just four games into his reign earlier in the season.

But speaking after Saturday's 2-0 victory at Hillsborough, Megson claimed he could sense the tide was beginning to turn in his favour following chants of 'Ginger Mourinho' at their new manager.

"I've been called Ginger all sorts in the past but that's a new one for me!" he told the club's official website.

"I could hear some sniggering on the bench behind me and I turned round to find Iain Hume and Matty Fryatt killing themselves laughing like two little schoolboys.

"It's obviously funny. But that's a lot easier to deal with for me. The football club needs everyone together, including the supporters. They're the biggest asset we've got.

"This club hasn't done a great deal for the last couple of years but we still get 23 or 24,000 week in week out.

"We have got to try and live up to the quality that they show. To do that we've got to have togetherness."
