Leicester City's winning goal dedicated to late club owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha

Leicester City players vow to ‘honor’ club owner in first Premier League fixture since tragedy

Leicester's midweek League Cup tie against Southampton was postponed but the Premier League match away to Cardiff on Saturday will go ahead as planned.

The visitors had warmed up for the game in special T-shirts bearing tributes to the Thai billionaire.

The 22-year-old's joy, however, quickly turned to bewilderment when referee Lee Probert brandished a yellow card, abiding by strict Football Association laws which prohibit players from taking off their shirts.

Using the profits from his monopoly, he bought Leicester City and helped turn them from an unremarkable English club into the surprise winners of the Premier League title in 2016.

Leicester players will fly to Thailand following the game against Cardiff and stay for 36 hours to attend the funeral of Srivaddhanaprabha. Many football fans on social media also struggled to hold back the tears.

Vichai, 60, and four other people died in when his helicopter crashed moments after departing the club's pitch last Saturday, bringing an abrupt end to the fairytale life of the duty-free mogul who was Thailand's fifth-richest man.

Along with Srivaddhanaprabha, two of his staff members - Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare - were also killed in the crash.

What Cristiano Ronaldo did after beating United in Champions League
The former United man has settled into life in Italy quickly, scoring seven goals in his last seven outings. "Cristiano guarantees quality and goals because he is a victor - the best in the world".

Following the game, Leicester players are now flying out to the funeral. "He is somebody who is going to be somewhat irreplaceable".

"We all spoke about. wanting to play, it's what Vichai would've wanted and that's what we are going to do", striker Jamie Vardy told Sky Sports, adding that they would "honour his name" with their performance.

The honour is traditionally granted at funerals of high-ranking state officials or citizens who had devoted their lives to the good of the country.

An elaborate royally sponsored funeral began on Saturday at a Bangkok temple.

After the bathing rites Buddhist monks will recite prayers from religious texts and the body will then be kept for 100 days before cremation, though a date has not been set.

"I'm very proud of him".

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) has begun examining wreckage recovered from the crash site and the in-flight recorder.
