It was an emotional moment for Wilfred Ndidi and Leicester City in their win over Burnley on Saturday afternoon as they remembered Khun Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and four others who all passed away in a fatal helicopter crash at almost a year ago.
The former Leicester City owner died in a helicopter alongside other four members of the crew after watching the Foxes game against West Ham on October 27 last year.
Although it was not exactly a year ago on Saturday, Leicester could only have made the tribute yesterday as they do not have any home game before 27th of October.
The Foxes ensured they gave the Thai business Tycoon a perfect remembrance as they edged out Burnley 2-1. Following the match, a couple of Leicester players took to Twitter to remember their former owner.
Leading the tributes is Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi who said the Thai will be forever missed while expressing his delight with the victory.
Forever in our hearts 💙… 3points 💼 🦊 pic.twitter.com/CSTeywsxPA
