Standing in black tracksuits the entire squad and backroom staff stood in a semi circle around the center circle, facing the matchday squad in its famous all-blue kit.

Outside the temple on Saturday, Kiatisuk "Zico" Senamuang, a former Thai national soccer player and coach who was also at the Leicester match, told reporters that worldwide soccer world had lost an important patron.

The horrific accident triggered a week of mourning in Leicester and throughout the world of football.

Numerous squad, including Vardy, Morgan, and goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, have spoken of the huge impact the Thai billionaire had on them and the club.

"That took a lot, so proud of how everyone played today, how professional everyone was".

Prior to the match, each Leicester player wore t-shirts paying tribute to Srivaddhanaprabha, who was known as "The Boss".

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.

'He knows the rules and it was important for Demi to take this yellow card.

Where many suspect the referee Lee Probert may have demonstrated some leniency given the impetus behind Gray's decision, viewers were amazed that no exception was made.




Leicester's Puel, who had told all of his players they did not have to play if they were not emotionally ready, was one who understood the decision. "They must have been stood there for 10-15 minutes".

"I'm very proud of him". "It's the first step in the healing process".

Leicester City players and manager Claude Puel have returned to the King Power Stadium to pay tribute to Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

The group from the club is due to return on Tuesday ahead of next weekend's visit of Burnley, the first home game since the tragedy.

Manchester City midfielder, Bernardo Silva has named four clubs that can stop his side from retaining the English Premier League, EPL, title this season.

He also oversaw Leicester City's 5,000-1 long shot to win the premier league in 2016.

The club's extraordinary run of success played out under Srivaddhanaprabha's ownership.

Vichai's death came just weeks before a planned auction for Thailand's airport duty-free and commercial concessions, threatening to end King Power's near monopoly of the sector.
