Leicester players pay respects in Bangkok at Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha funeral

Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha's funeral gets underway in Thailand Leicester City FC Owner’s Buddhist Funeral Begins

The game's opening goal was scored by Gray in the 55th minute, after which the 22-year-old whipped off his jersey to reveal an undershirt bearing the message "For Khun Vichai".

Tributes were paid to late Leicester City chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha ahead of Saturday's Premier League match against Cardiff City, following the helicopter crash that killed the Thai businessman and four other people last weekend.

Probert then chose to book Gray for this celebration as, by the laws of the game, it is against the rules, something that has angered a large majority of football fans.

But Leicester manager Puel said: "We played like professionals and it was important for the referee to be professional too".

Probert, following the letter of the law, subsequently brandished a yellow card and though his decision upset many Puel feels it was the right thing to do.

"It was the one time I accepted a yellow card from my player".

"That's what we're going to do, we know what we've got to do". When we saw all the images of the flowers around the stadium, it's fantastic.




Fans wore identical t-shirts in the away end, and the entire Leicester playing squad and backroom staff lined up around the centre circle for a minute's silence before kick-off. "It'll be massively important we attend, we are a close-knit group and one big family and one of the main reasons for that is Vichai, so it's massively important".

"It's going to be tough, it's going to be very emotional, but we've all sat down and had a chat, and one thing we wanted to make sure we did is play this game and honour the man himself". If we remain just on the emotion it will be hard, of course.

"All the players were devastated on Monday, but we got back training and we had to prepare for the game".

Cardiff dropped into the relegation zone as Newcastle climbed above them after recording their first win of the season.

"It's been a unusual week, surreal really, and I'm glad it's out of the way if I'm honest", Warnock said.

"The players gave everything but it's been hard this week, three or four lads in particuar".

"I think it will be a unusual atmosphere before kick-off, and I don't think anybody knows what sort of game it will be".
