The Foxes also shared a truly emotional montage of their wonderful chairman who gave so much to the club and city, which was aired moments before Saturday's Premier League fixture versus Burnley.


On October 28, 2018, the world mourned an incredibly kind and generous man who allowed football fans to dream again.

Fans and players have since paid tribute to Srivaddhanaprabha, with people taking part in a walk from Jubilee Square to the King Power stadium in the #WalkForVichai, on Saturday.

In another touching moment, a rainbow emerged over the ground before Leicester's league game.

This is a man who helped mastermind the greatest sporting triumph of our generation, and he also gave the people of Leicester hope and goodwill in an uncertain time.

Vichai bought Leicester in 2010 when they were struggling in the Championship and in turn, cleared their debts by loaning the club more than £100 million in the first four years.

He would not only pump money into the football club, but his generosity toward the city of Leicester was nothing short of amazing.

People from around the world once again paid tribute to the 60-year-old, and many have said the same thing.

He was a special and generous man.
