Hundreds attend Leicester City owner's funeral in Thailand

Leicester City players will fly to the country to pay their respects to the man widely credited with helping the club win the Premier League in 2015/16.

Saturday was the first day of a week-long funeral ceremony for Vichai who was killed, along with four others, when his helicopter came down in a auto park outside Leicester City stadium last Saturday, just moments after the game had finished. A planned match against Southampton on Tuesday was postponed.

Demarai Gray's solitary goal was enough to give the Foxes maximum points at the Cardiff City Stadium and goalkeeper Schmeichel cited their late owner's family as the inspiration for their performance.

Later, Schmeichel, who has made 303 appearances for Leicester since being signed by Srivaddhanaprabha in 2011, penned an emotional tribute on Twitter. "Boss" across his t-shirt.

Former England global Vardy told Sky Sports on Friday that he and the other players had to be there. "It's been a really tough week for everyone". "For us to be there is massively important".

The tragedy ensured that Saturday's result at the Cardiff City Stadium was always going to be secondary to the occasion, but Leicester's players showed total professionalism in testing circumstances as they returned to action. You can see from the reaction from everyone he had an impact on so many lives.

"He took us in as his extended family and that's exactly what we did with him. We have a very emotional connection with the fans, so we stayed till the end and celebrated victory with them".

'We are glad to come away from a really hard game with a win we can bring to Thailand, and we hope we did his family proud'.

They left the United Kingdom hours after beating Cardiff City 1-0 in their first match since the disaster last Saturday.

A giant Thai flag with both clubs' crests on it and in giant lettering "RIP Vichai" was passed from the home fans to the visiting supporters.

Leicester's 3,000 fans remained where they had stood for the previous two hours, the team's players and staff gathered close to them. According to host Jeff Stelling, Probert's decision demonstrated an incredible lack of sensitivity, while pundit and former Liverpool player Phil Thompson bluntly instructed the referee to 'get a life'. Everyone deals with grief in their own ways and the chance to attend part of his funeral was offered to us and everyone jumped on that. I will miss you.

Meanwhile, Brighton's Anthony Knockaert, who spent three years at Leicester, had his own tribute before his side's game at Everton.
