Leicester City vs. Burnley - Football Match Report

Leicester City

The "5000-1" walk is aimed at paying tribute to those, as well as recognizing the stunning odds which the club overcame under Srivaddhanaprabha's leadership to claim the Premier League title in 2016.

Leicester paid an emotional tribute to late owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha before their goalless draw against Burnley, while Newcastle boosted their bid to avoid Premier League relegation with a 2-1 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, son of Leicester City chairman, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, shows appreciation to the fans after the Premier League match between Leicester City and Burnley FC at The King Power Stadium on November 10, 2018 in Leicester, United Kingdom.

His son Aiyawatt, the club's vice-chairman, wrote in Saturday's match programme: "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 - but we are committed to honouring his memory and upholding his legacy".

Players and officials of the club traveled to Thailand following last weekend's game against Cardiff for the funeral of Srivaddhanaprabha.

Manager Claude Puel wrote: "He (Vichai) may not be here in person today but he will be here in spirit and we will carry his essence in our hearts".

A two minutes silence was held before the match and players wore black armbands, their match day shirts had Khun Vichai's name embroidered on them during the first half, whilst second half shirts had the poppy symbol, commemorating 100 years since the end of the World War one.

"What happened next will stay with me forever".

"The Srivaddhanaprabha family and everyone at Leicester City Football Club have been deeply moved by the remarkable volume of generous and thoughtful tributes left at King Power Stadium", the club said in a statement.

Stories have emerged of Vichai's acts of generosity to the club's supporters and players and sizeable donations he made to local hospitals.

"We know our fans, they are fantastic. there were 3,000 of them at our last game in Cardiff, it was a fantastic reunion with the fans", Puel said.

Ahead of their first home game since the tragic accident, around 10,000 Leicester fans were joined by Foxes players including Harry Maguire and James Maddison on a march towards the King Power in remembrance of Vichai.
