The Leicester City squad and manager Claude Puel have arrived in Thailand to pay their respects to the club’s owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who died in a helicopter crash.
Saturday was the first day of a week-long funeral for Srivaddhanaprabha, who was one of five people to die when his helicopter crashed in a car park outside Leicester’s King Power Stadium last weekend.
The Leicester players will be attending services on Sunday and Monday. They are expected to return to the United Kingdom on Tuesday morning.
Srivaddhanaprabha’s funeral started on Saturday with buddhist bathing rituals and will be followed by recitation ceremonies.
Leicester beat Cardiff 1-0 on Saturday, with the club paying tribute to Srivaddhanaprabha in the first match since his death.
Demarai Gray, who scored Leicester’s goal, revealed a shirt that contained the words ‘For Khun Vichai’ after finding the net.
The entire Leicester team, including goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, celebrated the goal together.
Srivaddhanaprabha, who took over Leicester in 2010, received much praise for the way in which he ran the club and oversaw the Foxes’ remarkable Premier League title win in 2016.
