Leicester stars fly out to Vichai wake

Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha's funeral gets underway in Thailand

Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha's funeral gets underway in Thailand

Leicester footballers yesterday attended the funeral in Bangkok of their chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha who died in a fiery helicopter crash at their home King Power Stadium last Saturday.

The data may help reveal what caused the aircraft to spiral to the ground shortly after take-off.

There could have been no more ideal summation of what their lost chairman Vichai Srivaddhahaprabha, killed in a horrific helicopter crash at the Kingpower Stadium last Saturday, had given these Leicester City's supporters. "I was on the pitch, I waved him off, I saw it all happen".

An emotional minute's silence was held prior to Leicester's game with Cardiff, which Schmeichel admits was hard to get through.

The Leicester City players arrived Sunday after traveling to Bangkok following their match with Cardiff City the day before.

"(The day was) emotional, yes, but that is not necessarily a bad thing.

"It was tough. but we wanted to do it for the chairman and his family".

In the first public reaction from the family, Vichai's youngest son Aiyawatt - better known by his nickname "Top" - said in an Instagram post this week that his father had "left me with a legacy to continue and I will do everything I can to carry on his big vision and dreams". "We wanted to do it for him and his family".

But Dyche insisted: "There's work to be done but the mentality on show today was very positive". We have to grow and get better". "The action was good".

Staff and players alike stood with heads bowed, trying to rein in their emotions - with stars like Danish goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel barely holding back tears, a testament to how much Srivaddhanaprabha meant to the Foxes family. "I really can't understand the kind of mentality that brings me more white hair!"

They had earlier paid an emotional tribute to Vichai as the grief-stricken team won 1-0 at Cardiff to begin the healing process.

Puel, Jamie Vardy and Morgan travelled with Schmeichel after the match on a chartered flight to the Thai Buddhist temple funeral of Vichai, who was killed with two of his staff and two pilots.

"It was a hard game, they did their best", said Puel.

Cardiff City and Leicester City both put their rivalries aside to pay tribute to the victims of the helicopter crash outside the King Power Stadium. "Not only the Thai people but also soccer fans around the world mourn his loss", he said.

Demarai Gray produced a sharp finish to score the victor midway through the second half, a goal that sparked wild celebrations in front of the 3,000 traveling fans.

Leicester then gathered in a huddle for Schmeichel's team talk and, whatever emotive words he used, they worked as Demarai Gray scored the only goal with a low finish in the 55th minute.
