Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha: Leicester City chairman to be honoured with statue

Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha
Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha bought Leicester in 2010 and led them to the Premier League title in 2015-16
Leicester City will erect a statue of late chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha at King Power Stadium following his death in a helicopter crash last month.

Srivaddhanaprabha and four others were killed in the crash on 27 October.

His son Aiyawatt made the announcement in a souvenir programme for Saturday's Premier League game with Burnley.

"We will never be able to repay what he did for us - for me as his son, us as his family, everyone connected to Leicester City and beyond," he said.

"We are committed to honouring his memory and upholding his legacy.

"Our continued growth as a club, our state-of-the-art new training ground and our planned stadium expansion will help realise his vision for Leicester City."

Further details regarding the commissioning and the statue's positioning will be released in due course.

Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha added the statue would be a "permanent and fitting tribute to the man that made it all possible".

"He will forever be in our hearts. He will never be forgotten," he added.

Leicester will wear shirts embroidered with their former owner's name against Burnley.

A special video will be played before their game, which kicks off at 15:00 GMT on Saturday, while fans have also planned a tribute march to the ground.

Tributes left at the stadium are to be moved to a memorial area.

The club will present supporters at the game with scarves, pin badges, clap banners and a special matchday programme as commemorative gifts

Freeze the Leicester 5.

Bit late now, but a bit of forward planning here may have bought them a few minutes to thaw out and escape.

I’ve done a minutes silence at the exact time it happened every day and I will continue to do so until the government decide to hold a full enquiry into the role of the police in this “ accident “

Justice for the 5 ✊

Signed the condolences book.
Very moving seeing all the flowers.

Quite a lot of grief when Matthew Harding died in a copter crash wasn't there.

"I don't recall all this outpouring of grief when the last chairman to buy a premier league/first division trophy died."

Indeed. Was there much when 'Deadly' Doug Ellis of Villa died recently?Mixed record, but they did win trophies under him. Old school, not a glamorous football man... but I only recall a small mention on the BBC website? And, for better or worse, he was Knighted.

I can't imagine what honours are going to be laid on the Leicester man at BBC Sports Personality Of The Year. Dan Roan can sit it out in the pub, that's for sure.

Modern society just obsessed with "tragedy". Not genuine sadness. Just disaster voyeurism.

PS: Can't someone post another RIP / farm buying thread? Been ages.

"Thoughts & Prayers" / "Never Heard Of Them!" / C&P where applicable.

Darren Bent also chose eleven Leicester players in his team of the week.

They were so brave.

This is beyond cringe levels now.

There'll be a concert in Hyde Park for him soon.

Who will be the person in the public eye brave enough to question the outpouring of grief and sabotage their career in the process?

I hope it's Brady.

Alan Shearer's BBC Sport team of the week contains ELEVEN Leicester players. "To play in such terrible circumstances" they "deserve huge credit".

As I said earlier in the thread, their owner died, not their back four.

twoleftfeet - that's ridiculous.

He was a Chinese Thai. There are lots of them and they dominate the wealthy class. Thaksin, who used to own Man City is one too. They arrived a long time ago and were forced to adopt Thai identities by the king of the time, but remained a distinct group.

Re: Leicester city owners in helicopter crash?
Sven - there must be something wrong because I find myself often agreeing with you these days. The fact is he was given the sole rights to the duty free airport business with no competitors even considered. If bribery was not involved in that deal, my nephew is a monkey.

Re: Leicester city owners in helicopter crash?
Just for the record, he was only an honourary Thai. He was chinese, originally.

My sons under 15s match in Sussex today had a minutes silence for the helicopter crash victims.

Sir Alf.

Agree with every word.

I'm not a cold hearted bloke by any means but i cant pretend to care about the crash. Yes it was a shame that people died but so what? Death is part of life and like others have said people die all the time. How many parents have lost children in the week since the crash? They'ĺl be no nationwide mourning and handwringing for such folk so why people feel the need to show they care about a strangers death is beyond me.

Saying all that, the answer is they dont care they just need the rest of the world to believe that they do.

I don't recall all this outpouring of grief when the last chairman to buy a premier league/first division trophy died.

I think the media are milking this in support of their own agenda (whatever the fuck that actually is) on the pretext that "it was virtually beamed live into 'everyone's' front room", so we, as a nation, now have a common bond in grief".

THEY can just fuck off. I was not affected by the news when it happened, I'm not affected now, and I strongly suspect it will actually have ZERO impact on my future life - or that of all those I know.

Rich, foreign bloke I didn't know dies ostentatiously.

Didn't care then, don't care now. Sick of all the faux-grief.
