Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha: Kasper Schmeichel says crash will always stay with him

Thai billionaire and Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was remembered on Saturday by footballers, fans and loved ones in the United Kingdom and Thailand, a week after his death in a helicopter accident.

Floral tributes were laid on the pitch as the teams and coaching staff gathered in the centre circle for a minute's silence for Vichai, one of five victims last Saturday of the crash outside the club's King Power Stadium.

Leicester's players wore t-shirts during the pre-match warm-up bearing an image of Srivaddhanaprabha's face and the words "The Boss", the title he was known by at the King Power Stadium.

Demarai Gray's victor proved the difference but Schmeichel's clean sheet, after being in tears during the pre-match minute's silence, highlighted Leicester's collective resilience.

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy and his team mates will travel to Thailand for the funeral after Saturday's Premier League match against Cardiff City.

Srivaddhanaprabha bought the club for $57 million in 2010 and it was promoted to the Premier League in 2014.

"That was a tough game, not just on the pitch, but mentally", goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel said.

Striker Jamie Vardy recently spoke of the squad's desire to earn a victory against Cardiff in honour of Srivaddhanaprabha, and Demarai Gray's 55th-minute victor proved to be an emotional tribute to the man who helped transform the club.

The Leicester players were applauded on their arrival at the stadium, before both sets of fans observed a minute's silence ahead of kick-off. I'm glad we got three points for him.

McDowell said Thursday that Winfrey's campaign efforts on behalf of Abrams is "going to get that woman elected". During a debate against Abrams he said he would not recuse himself in other election-related issues.

The Leicester players and staff flew to Thailand after Demarai Gray's second-half strike had secured the points in the Welsh capital.

"We were very close to the chairman", Leicester captain Wes Morgan said.

"It's been a odd week, surreal really, and I'm glad it's out of the way if I'm honest", manager Neil Warnock said.

"Sometimes referees have to do what they have to do and in this instance the law is quite clear on it", he said.

"We had a lot of chances and we deserve this result and it is a fantastic opportunity to honour the chairman", Puel told Sky Sports.

Goals from Erik Lamela and Harry Kane put Spurs 3-0 up before penalties from Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez gave the Wolves hope.

Manchester United recovered to win 2-1 at Bournemouth to move seventh, Newcastle United recorded their first league victory of the season, 1-0 over Watford, while Everton and West Ham United also won.

There was a tense finish as Wolves' Ruben Neves scored a 68th minute penalty before team-mate Raul Jimenez netted with another spot-kick in the 79th minute.
