Leicester stars fly out to Vichai wake

Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha's funeral gets underway in Thailand

Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha's funeral gets underway in Thailand

The funeral of Thai billionaire and Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, killed in a helicopter crash a week ago, got underway at a Bangkok temple on Saturday with a Buddhist bathing rite using water bestowed by the Thai King.

Demarai Gray claimed the 55th-minute victor to provoke an outpouring of emotion, both on the pitch and in the stand housing the visiting Leicester supporters, rarely seen in football.

Schmeichel, 31, said: "It has been very hard for everyone". "It felt like a cup final".

"There are a lot of exhausted people in there now but I am proud of this team and the club". "He had a really big impact on my life".

"But I think it is fantastic to finish this game and this situation with a win and a good game". It has been an emotional day. "It gives you a certain strength as well".

Leicester's Puel, who had told all of his players they did not have to play if they were not emotionally ready, was one who understood the decision.

Keeper, Kasper Schmeichel was visibly shaken during the tribute and was one of the first people on the scene of the tragic accident at the stadium last week.

"I said at half-time I was the luckiest manager in the Premier League in a half when the score should be like 6-2", Mourinho said. "I was on the pitch, I waved him off, I saw it all happen". It is something that will stay with me, unfortunately.

Jose Mourinho's team once again needed to dig deep after falling behind on Saturday - the third time in four Premier League matches they have shown their curious Jekyll and Hyde character. It's not a nice memory but I've had all the support that I need.

Leicester fan and Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker, on his Twitter account, called it a "silly law, always has been but not the day to get worked up about something so insignificant".

Demarai Gray scored the only goal of the game, removing his shirt to reveal his own tribute - "for Khun Vichai", using the Thai honorific. "When Arsenal chase the game they throw everyone on the pitch, which is really cool, and we were not as compact as I wanted".

Leicester City footballers have visited a Thai temple to pay their respects to Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, the club's late owner. "We talked about how proud we are of being here, of being part of what he has built".

The Foxes stars will fly to Bangkok for Srivaddhanaprabha's funeral this evening.

A more assured back line has helped Liverpool to seven clean sheets across all competitions this season, with Cardiff the only side to have breached them at Anfield in a Premier League fixture - and that effort came in a convincing 4-1 victory for Klopp's side. "You couldn't ask for a better chairman".
