Leicester's chief operating officer Paul Mace has acknowledged the pressure manager Micky Adams is under and pledged he has the club's full support.

Adams is said to be appalled that three of his players are in a Spanish prison on sexual assault charges.

"Everybody is fully committed behind Micky," Mace told BBC Radio Five Live.

"I have been in regular contact with Micky for the last six days and it has been a very, very difficult time. But we need to get through it."

Reports have suggested Adams could be on the verge of quitting the club over the events in La Manga.

That would be a huge blow for Leicester, and Mace is very aware of the contribution Adams has made sign taking over the reins in April, 2002.

Mace said: "Micky has done a fantastic job for this football club.

"He is probably the single biggest reason we are playing Premiership football this season."

Mace added that Leicester would launch a full internal investigation into the events in La Manga and said that the club now regretted what was supposed to be a relaxing mid-season break.

"With hindsight obviously it was an incorrect choice but at the time we wanted to give our players the best possible preparations for the Premiership run-in," he said

"Obviously it hasn't turned out like that."
