Pearson said: "The irony of what's happened doesn't escape me.
"I had a good time at Leicester, and I've heard one or two comments in the last 24 hours about my departure.
"People can say what they want, but the bottom line is that I resigned, and my decision was based on the fact that if they wanted to keep me, if they'd shown any inclination to do that - then they could have done."
But Pearson added: "When you're on holiday and you find out that the consortium that subsequently takes over [the club] has been shown round while you're the manager and you don't know anything about it, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out what's happening.
"What I would say is that now I'm working for people who clearly want me to stay there and be their manager.
"The jury may be out in terms of the fans at the moment, but I have a good working relationship with my superiors, which I certainly didn't with the chief executive at Leicester City."
Pearson previously managed Carlisle and Southampton, and had spells on the coaching staff at Stoke, West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle.
