The England Under 21 coach is currently assembling a squad which he is certain will under-perform at this summer’s adolescent European Championships.
But, FA chairman David Bernstein confirmed that he has absolutely no interest in Pearce as a colleague or a person.
He said: “Considering Stuart’s woeful record as Under-21 boss, I just assumed that someone had sacked him.
“Of course, now that I know that’s not the case, I will be doing so after the inevitable calamity that will happen in this summer’s tournament.”
The football association appointed the former Nottingham Forest defender back in 2007, because he was cheap, unemployed and needed something to do.
Fat cat Bernstein was then forced to appoint Pearce as manager of the Great Britain Olympic team, a move that was akin to employing a Labrador to run a Tesco Express.
As expected, his GB team’s performances were more underwhelming than a broken sauna in a nudist colony.
After that disaster, the FA clearly thought Pearce had left. Of course, because they are paying him with almost nothing, they simply did not notice he was still in the role.
As a result, a whole host of Under-21 players have pulled out of the squad for this summer’s tournament, citing an inherent need not to waste their lives.
A source close to Pearce confirmed that the coach’s philosophy hasn’t changed.
“Stuart plans to pick 11 players for every game and then shout at them as if they were small children in a Victorian work house. He is looking forward to being outclassed and out-thought by his contemporaries.”
