James McClean hits out at ‘b****’ Ben Pearson on Instagram after clashing with Preston ace during Stoke match

STOKE winger James McClean ignited his feud with Preston’s Ben Pearson by taking to Instagram to label him a “b****.”

It started during a high-tempered affair in Preston’s 2-0 win in the Potteries on Wednesday night.

During the second half, the players were involved in a scuffle on the field following a series of strong challenges.

Stoke’s Nick Powell and Pearson were at the heart of it until McClean barged his opponent in the back causing him to fall to the floor.

Pearson then attempted to retaliate by charging at the Republic of Ireland international causing players from both teams to try and separate the pair.

Uploading an image of Pearson on the turf to Instagram, he captioned it: “Clean up aisle four there’s a b**** on the floor.”

According to Alan Browne, who scored to help bolster Preston’s promotion push, there is a bit of history between the duo.

He said after the game: “I just tried to grab Pearo but there was about 15 players trying to grab him and he just probably wanted to get stuck in.

“He’s red mist for 90 minutes to be fair, he just plays the game like an animal but when something like that happens he doesn’t like it.

“I know he’s had a bit of history with James McClean in the past and they don’t particularly like each other, but it is what it is and you have to get on with it.”

Pearson had the last laugh after it was revealed McClean will miss the next “several weeks” with a knee injury.

McClean is often at the centre of attention around Remembrance Day for his refusal to wear a poppy.

In 2018 he hit out at a section of his own fans labelling them “uneducated cavemen” who were abusing him for his religious beliefs.

McClean does plenty of good work for charity and recently forked out £3000 for a pair of boxing gloves to help raise cash for the family whose 13-year-old son was knocked down and killed by a car.
