Leicester City honour late Thai owner Vichai

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".

"No chairman has done what he's done with Leicester City". Top (Vichai's son) and the rest of the family will carry on his father's legacy.

Also at the game, a special "Tribute to Khun Vichai" video will be shown on the big screens inside the ground while thousands of fans plan to march from Jubilee Square in the city centre to the ground. "There is no doubt about that", added the 57-year-old.

Srivaddhanaprabha and four others were killed after his helicopter crashed outside the King Power Stadium following the Premier League match against West Ham on October 27.

Boss Claude Puel admitted preparations for the Burnley game had been hard after a 12,000-mile round trip but said it was important to the players to pay their respects.

His son and vice-chairman Aiyawatt confirmed the commissioning of a statue in a personal tribute in a souvenir programme to be given to all fans at Saturday's home Premier League game against Burnley.

The team, now 10th in the Premier League, returned to action last weekend, beating Cardiff 1-0 away.

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.

Two minutes of silence honoured the five crash victims and also marked the centenary since the end of World War I.

"I was on the pitch and I waved him off", said Schmeichel.

A number of players, including Jamie Vardy and Kasper Schmeichel, and manager Puel travelled to Thailand to attend Vichai's funeral. "It is something that will stay with me, unfortunately".

"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.

The LCFC Foxes Foundation, which has raised nearly £2M for local charities since its formation in 2011/12, has been renamed in honour of Khun Vichai, whose generosity saw him make over £4M in personal donations to local hospitals, universities and charities in recent years.

Puel has admitted getting the players ready for the game against struggling Burnley had been tough.
