Cardiff, Leicester match to go ahead following death of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha

Posted November 01, 2018

"Throughout his life, in sport and in the way he faced life, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was - as his Leicester 2015/16 squad - top of humanity's Premier League", Mgr Felzmann told The Catholic Universe.

"A number of clubs will also be marking Remembrance Day 2018 at these fixtures".

Leicester were due to play Southampton tonight at the King Power Stadium but that Carabao Cup tie was postponed on Sunday.

"Following Saturday evening's bad events at King Power Stadium, the thoughts and feelings of Leicester City FC are at the forefront of our minds", Choo said.

"As such, we will be offering our support to Leicester City in any way necessary in respect of this weekend's fixture". The club opened a book of condolence for fans to pay tribute at the stadium on Tuesday, after many had left scarves and flowers outside the ground in the preceding days.

After the tragic news of Srivaddhanaprabha's death, Pearson has written a letter in tribute to his former colleague, saying "his quiet yet authoritative aura, presence and personality have had an immeasurable influence on English football".

Pearson is credited with saving Leicester from relegation in 2014-15, his side winning seven of their last eight matches, before he was sacked after disagreements with the board.

"A manager could not have wished for a better boss", Pearson wrote in a personal letter published on the website of Belgian team OH Leuven, where he has been coach since previous year.

"This most definitely ensured the belief that sporting miracles can happen". That morning at 8am fans and people from the wider community in Leicester were able to come and write their messages in the book of condolence inside a specially-erected marquee. An online book can also be signed via the club's website.

With mourners flocking to the stadium and the crash site cordoned off as investigators picked through the wreckage, Leicester had already postponed Tuesday's scheduled home League Cup tie against Southampton.

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) are still conducting their investigation into what caused Saturday's tragedy.

Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, who was present at the scene of the crash on Saturday, was in tears as floral tributes were laid inside and outside the King Power Stadium on Monday.
