The entire squad of Leicester City and Claude Puel have arrived in Thailand to attend the memorial service of the late club chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprahba.
Saturday denoted the first day of seven days in length memorial service for the Thailand businessman, who was the owner of the Midlands football club, and the players and staff wanted to pay their respect, by making a trip to Thailand.
The Leicester players will attend the funeral service on Sunday and Monday before coming back to England on Tuesday morning.
Srivaddhanaprahba’s memorial service started on Saturday, with Buddhist bathing rituals, which are expected to be trailed by recitation functions.
In a passionate day for the players and staff of Leicester City, the Foxes secured a 1-0 triumph away to Cardiff City on Saturday, with the match being preceded and pursued by ardent tributes to the club’s chairman, who tragically died alongside four others in a helicopter mishap a week ago
The only goal of the match was scored by winger Demarai Gray, who in the wake of scoring revealed a shirt with the words ‘For Khun Vichai’, as methods for devoting his goal to the deceased boss.
Srivaddhanaprahba’s tragic death has left a vast hole amidst the football club, as well as the city of Leicester, and in spite of the fact that the away win on Saturday was welcome, it keeps on being an intense time for all associated with the disaster.
A King Power representative stated that Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana, the girl of King Maha Vajiralongkorn, is also expected to attend Sunday’s funeral service.
The initial three days of the intricate service will have illustrious sponsorship. After the week-long service, Vichai’s body will be kept for 100 days before cremation, however, a date hasn’t been set.
Vichai’s company started with just a store in Bangkok; today, the King Power company incorporates an imposing business model over the duty-free shops in Thailand’s tourist-airport.
Regardless of his business smarts, Vichai owed his rise to the shrewd route of Thailand’s capricious governmental issues and powerbrokers.
His connections to the monarchy were reflected for the sake of his organization and his surname — which was given to him by the former ruler, and signifies “propitious and prosperous light”.
The four other victims were identified by British police as Nursara Suknamai — a performer and a runner-up of 2005 Miss Thailand Universe beauty pageant— and Kaveporn Punpare, both members of Vichai’s staff, pilot Eric Swaffer and Izabela Roza Lechowicz.
Vichai leaves behind his wife and four children, two daughters and two sons.
