Adieu Srivaddhanaprabha! Ndidi, Iheanacho and Musa join Mourners

Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was killed when his helicopter crashed outside the King Power Stadium on Saturday, the club confirmed on Sunday.

Former Leicester City player, Ahmed Musa paid tribute to Srivaddhanaprabha, whom he described as a father:


Current Leicester players Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho also paid their tributes to the memorable of the Thai Owner:

The crash occurred following the Foxes’ match with West Ham United in the Premier League. Tributes to those involved in the crash were laid at the stadium on Sunday.

 

It’s been commonplace for the owner’s helicopter to land on the pitch at the stadium following matches before flying him out of the stadium.

 

Per BBC, “witnesses said they saw it just clear the stadium before it spiralled out of control and crashed in a fireball.”

 

Srivaddhanaprabha, worth £3.8 billion according to Forbes, founded King Power Duty Free and purchased Leicester in 2010 when they were in the second tier of English football.

 

The club enjoyed a remarkable rise under his guidance, earning promotion to the top flight and then sensationally winning the Premier League title in the 2015-16 campaign.

 

The triumph was regarded as one of the biggest shocks in football history, with the Foxes famously 5,000-1 outsiders at the start of the campaign.
