The Leicester City players and staff have paid their respects for the second straight night at the funeral in Bangkok of their chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who died in a fiery helicopter crash last Saturday.



The Leicester contingent flew to the Thai capital straight after scoring an emotional 1-0 Premier League win over Cardiff in South Wales, their first game after the crash at King Power Stadium that also killed two members of his staff, another passenger and the pilot.

They arrived in Bangkok on Sunday and went straight to the funeral at Wat Debsirindrawas Ratchaworawiharn.

The team must soon return to England in order to prepare for Saturday’s home game with Burnley.

The fixture at King Power will also give their supporters the chance to pay their respects to the late chairman and is sure to be another emotional occasion.

The funeral was also attended on Monday by Prime Minister Prayut Chanocha, as well as the Thailand team and their Serbian coach, Milovan Rajevac.
