Leicester City players join thousands of fans on march to pay tribute to Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha

Leicester City players joined their supporters as they marched upon the King Power Stadium to pay tribute to tragic owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

The Foxes return to the arena for the first time since the man they affectionately knew as ‘The Boss’ died in a helicopter accident alongside four others after a 1-1 draw with West Ham two weeks ago.

And fans swarmed to they stadium to honour Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha in what they have dubbed the 5,000-1 march, a poignant reminder the odds you could have got on Leicester’s historic Premier League title win back in 2016.

They marched from Jubilee Square to the stadium with supporters laying tributes in the form of shirts, scarves, flowers, and more to commemorate the man who will forever be a legend to them.

A special programme has been produced by Leicester for the match with Burnley, featuring a host of tributes to Khun Vichai from famous faces, including Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler.

Meanwhile, the book of condolence opened in the immediate aftermath of the crash will remain so today for more fans to pay tribute to Vichai.

On Friday, the club announced a plan to erect a statue of the chairman outside the King Power Stadium.

Meanwhile, the club have said a two-minute silence would be observed prior to the Burnley match in memory of servicemen and women, as well as the five who died in the crash.
