Leicester City To Wear Special Tribute Shirt Vs Burnley To Honour Srivaddhanaprabha

  • Leicester City players to wear special kits in tribute to owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha

There was a subdued atmosphere but pockets of chanting, including "We love you Leicester, we do", "I'm Leicester till I die" and simply "Vichai".

"No chairman has done what he's done with Leicester City. They have learned a lot about themselves in all this and I am proud of them all".

"I'm confident about the future".

Harry Maguire, Andy King, James Maddison, Matty James and Hamza Choudhury were among the Leicester players who joined the fans as they marched from Jubilee Square, in the city centre, to the King Power Stadium, singing Vichai's name.

The 20-year-old Argentine had given away two penalties as Tottenham almost threw away a three-goal lead in last weekend's 3-2 win at Wolves.

Plans have also been outlined to erect a statue in Srivaddhanaprabha's memory outside the stadium.

Manager Claude Puel wrote: "He (Vichai) may not be here in person today but he will be here in spirit and we will carry his essence in our hearts". "The people of Leicester have been incredible".


With Vichai's family in attendance, Leicester's players, who made a 19,000 km round trip to Thailand for the funeral in midweek, wore a special commemorative shirt, while nearly every fan sported one of the specially distributed scarves bearing the words "Forever In Our Hearts".

- Leicester City are unbeaten in eight home league matches against Burnley (W4 D4) since losing 1-0 in November 2007 in the Championship.

During the second half, the Foxes' shirts will bear an embroidered poppy symbol in commemoration of Remembrance Sunday, with a two-minute silence to be held before kick-off.

Staff and players including striker Jamie Vardy, goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and captain Wes Morgan attended the emotional funeral on Monday in Thailand.

Schmeichel has been especially affected, having watched the helicopter take off from the pitch before it appeared to go into a fateful spin. "I saw it all happen".

"The Srivaddhanaprabha family and everyone at Leicester City Football Club have been deeply moved by the remarkable volume of generous and thoughtful tributes left at King Power Stadium", the club said in a statement.

"It's not easy to prepare this game, but the togetherness between us all, it's a good feeling, a good energy, a fantastic strength", he said.
