Leicester pay respect at Thai owner’s funeral
05 November 2018, 09:30 | Anna Jefferson
The elaborate funeral of Leicester City's Thai owner and duty-free mogul Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha began at a Buddhist temple in Bangkok this evening, as members of Thailand's business and political elite came in black mourning garb to pay tribute to the well-connected billionaire.
Kasper Schmeichel says he will never be able to rid himself of the memory of the helicopter crash that killed Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, Leicester's owner. "I'm confident after I saw my players at training that they can give their best", said Puel.
Denmark global Schmeichel, who was in tears as Leicester's players and staff locked arms in the centre circle during a poignant minute's silence before kick-off, said the occasion had been tough for the players to handle.
"[The day was] emotional, yes, but that is not necessarily a bad thing".
Leicester City defeated Cardiff City 1-0 on Saturday in a highly-charged occasion and after the match ended the players headed to the airport for what they were clear was the day's most important engagement. We talked about having to just stick together and be what we have always been - a family.
Schmeichel added: "Wes [Morgan] said a bit, I said a bit. We did it for him and his family". "The feeling he has instilled in everybody in being welcome, no matter your position at the club, the playing staff, stadium staff, everyone is equal". Their manager Claude Puel had said during the week that the result in Cardiff would not be important.
Goalkeeper Schmeichel was part of a delegation from the club which arrived in Bangkok on Sunday to attend Srivaddhanaprabha's funeral.
"Coming out for the warm-up was tough, the first 10 minutes I couldn't steady myself, I was shaking a little bit".
The Leicester manager spoke of his pride on Saturday (local time) and said his players had grown as people over the past week. He had that on me and so many people, and the outpouring of grief around the world shows that.
Demarai Gray produced a sharp finish to score the victor midway through the second half, a goal that sparked wild celebrations in front of the 3,000 traveling fans.
Richarlison scored twice to lead Everton past Brighton 3-1, Felipe Anderson's second-half double helped West Ham beat Burnley 4-2, and Newcastle United beat Watford 1-0 for their first win and moved out of the relegation zone ahead of Cardiff.
On Saturday, Demarai Gray scored the victor on 55 minutes and removed his jersey to reveal an undershirt bearing the words "For Khun Vichai".
