Hundreds attend Leicester City owner's funeral in Thailand

May JohnsonNov 05, 2018

Members of the Leicester City team, including the striker Jamie Vardy, goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and captain Wes Morgan, as well as club officials flew to Thailand after their match against Cardiff.

Players and staff from Leicester City were set to arrive in Bangkok Sunday (Nov 4) to attend a mourning rite for the club's chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, whose death last week in a helicopter crash stunned the Premier League club. The 31-year-old had received counselling during the week and was in tears during the pre-match minute's silence, but responded with a performance full of guts and resilience. "Maybe we deserve a little more", Emery said. "It felt like a cup final".

"I feel proud. It's been a really tough week for everyone". It gives you a certain strength. He used to come down at home games, have a joke and a laugh, always say, 'Want win and three points.' We did that today.

British media reported that in the moments after last month's tragedy, Schmeichel ran towards the downed helicopter in the vehicle park outside the stadium in a courageous attempt to see if he could help.

"I spoke to somebody [for support]", he said. I am immensely proud to have known him. It was something that will stay with me, unfortunately. "The club has been great and everybody has received the support that they needed".

Wayne Rooney to make England comeback

"But it is their last farewell to him, and will doubtless be an emotional occasion for them".

"We talked in the dressing room that there was really no need for gameplans, tactics, all that". "It was just about controlling our emotions".

Leicester held on to win 1-0, a result we were all kind of hoping and rooting for - bar Cardiff fans, naturally.

They travelled to Thailand 6,000 miles in 15 hours on Saturday after winning an English Premier League match against Cardiff City, where tributes were brought onto the pitch before the game in memory of Vichai.

However, Leicester manager Claude Puel believe Probert was only doing his job, despite the circumstances.

The Leicester winger has been in good form for the Foxes this season and cemented his growing reputation with a moment of genuine quality 10 minutes after the interval, finishing coolly after Chilwell's superb cross.
