Hundreds attend Leicester City owner's funeral in Thailand

Hundreds attend Leicester City owner's funeral in Thailand”

Leicester saw out the win with few alarms after Demarai Gray's 55th-minute goal, defending resolutely amid spells of Cardiff pressure.

In delivering a 1-0 win away at Cardiff City, the team had the prefect tribute for the beloved Thai billionaire, who brought the club its first-ever top-flight league championship in its 134-year history.

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

"That took a lot".

He added: 'Everyone grieves in different ways and the opportunity was given (to attend the funeral) and we wanted to go.

"I can't imagine what his family is going through, we did it for him and his family".

The Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel says his team's victory at Cardiff on Saturday was "like a cup final" and that the feeling was incomparable to anything else he has experienced in his career. A wreath was laid on the pitch and a minute's silence immaculately observed by both sets of fans.

Before the game, Leicester players wore white t-shirts bearing the image of Srivaddhanaprabha and the words "The Boss" on the front of them.

Claude Puel's team, playing with poise and desire despite their traumatic week, finally had a cathartic moment in the 55th minute.

Gray celebrated by removing his jersey to reveal an undershirt on which was written "For Khun Vichai", and was booked by referee Lee Probert.

Leicester City players have arrived in Thailand for the funeral of the club's owner, who died in a helicopter crash. "The impact he's had on my family has been incredible and I'm proud to be part of his family". "Maybe we deserve a little more", Emery said.

Though the draw moved unbeaten Liverpool top of the table, they were left to rue dropped points. "They are growing as people and it's a good thing", he said. "We had clear chances".

At Dean Court, Rashford's close-range finish in stoppage-time helped United hit back after a dismal opening period.

United started poorly and deservedly trailed through Callum Wilson's early goal before Anthony Martial equalised before the break.

"We were defensively very bad".

With crucial Champions League ties against PSV Eindhoven and Inter Milan in November, as well as London derbies against Crystal Palace and Chelsea, Pochettino was forced to do without Eric Dier who was declared unfit, while Mousa Dembele limped off in the first half.

City are two points clear of Chelsea, now second following a 3-1 win at home to London rivals Crystal Palace.

In its first game since Vichai's death, Leicester won an emotional and highly charged match 1-0.
