Manchester City's Riyad Mahrez dedicates goal vs Tottenham to Leicester owner

Srivaddhanaprabha's wife, Aimon, and son, Aiyawatt, laid a wreath in the middle of the pitch at the stadium yesterday before embracing the Leicester players and staff gathered around the centre circle.

A striking photo of Kung Vichai is the current centrepiece of a moving memorial area outside the stadium where thousands of fans have left flowers and messages.

Vichai's son Aiyawatt, who is the club's vice-chairman, is now in Leicester paying his respects and will hold talks with chief executive Susan Whelan later this week about how best to memorialise his father.

"I was terribly shaken by the news". He always had a word of comfort for everybody.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Mahrez said "he was like a Dad for us".

On Sunday evening it was confirmed that Leicester City's owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, was in the aircraft along with four others, when it crashed.

The Italian coach had taken over from Nigel Pearson, who managed the club in two spells from 2008-10 and then from 2011 following Srivaddhanaprabha's takeover the previous year.

And that display is pushed pretty much to the edges of the Air's lid, yet still leaves space for a FaceTime camera. The new MacBook Air has better display with bigger screen-to-body ratio and better colours in the Retina Display.

Leicester City has also released a statement saying that the football club's thoughts were with "the Srivaddhanaprabha family and the families of all those on-board at this time of unspeakable loss".

Despite his parting of ways, Pearson was full of praise for Srivaddhanaprabha's contribution to Leicester's fairytale. On a personal level, a manager could not have wished for a better boss. "He's in love with football".

"To be honest it's been very, very hard for me", he said after the match.

"EFL clubs will also be marking Remembrance Day 2018 at fixtures next weekend".

Vichai bought Leicester City in 2010 and became chairman the following February, pouring millions into the team and becoming a beloved figure in the club and the city - a feat rarely achieved by the Premier League's foreign owners.

'A minute's silence will be observed before kick-off at the Cardiff City Stadium and players will wear black armbands in Khun Vichai's honour.

"Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha made a very important contribution to the Premier League victory, as he'd arrive 30 minutes before the game to embrace everyone".
