London: Leicester manager Nigel Pearson got the goal posts at Swansea`s Liberty Stadium measured on Saturday and admitted he wished they were smaller after his team lost 2-0.
Pearson said his goalkeepers had raised concerns over the size of the goals at the Welsh venue in the pre-match warm-up and a tape measure was even summoned to ensure they were within the rules.
"The goalkeepers felt they were a bit high," Pearson said. "I thought it was in everyone`s best interest to get it checked and it was quite light-hearted.
"The officials were slightly surprised, but everything was fine. I could have done with it being a bit smaller.
"It is very easy to look at the goals and lay the blame for defeats but ultimately what you do with the ball when you have it is equally important, if not more."
