LEICESTER players have fallen silent in memory of the club’s former owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who died after his helicopter spiralled out of control last Saturday.

Players and fans fell silent for one minute ahead of the match

Billionaire Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was one of five people who died after his helicopter crashed in the club’s car park just moments after taking off from the pitch last Saturday.

Players and fans fell silent for one minute ahead of the club’s Premier League fixture against Cardiff.

Floral tributes were laid on the pitch ahead of kick-off as both sets of players gathered on the centre circle.

Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel was seen in tears, as he led an emotional team talk before the first kick of the game.

Images of the five who were killed in the crash were shown on the big screen.

Two members of his staff Nusara Suknamai, Kaveporn Punpare and pilot Eric Swaffer and his partner Izabela Roza Lechowicz also died in the crash.

Members of the crowd were seen showing their respect to the businessman as two big banners moved their way around the stadium.

Leicester defender Wes Morgan said Mr Srivaddhanaprabha was "a thoughtful person, he'd do anything for anyone.
"He'll be sorely missed, not just at Leicester but on this earth."

Graeme Smith, chairman of fans group Foxes Trust, said ahead of the game: "It's been very bittersweet.

“We are pleased that the football is back on but we're not quite sure what to expect yet.

"We want to back the team, the fans want to back the manager, want to back the players, in what must have been a horrendous week.
"We're fans.

“We don't know the people involved as closely as the players, and it's affected us really deeply, so I can't imagine how the players and managers, who day by day knew Khun Vichai and how he worked, must be feeling."

The 60-year-olds funeral is taking place at a Buddhist temple in Bangkok and players are due to fly out to pay their respect after the game.

His body will be kept for 100 days and his cremation will take place in the future.
