Leicester City players attended the funeral for club chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, killed in a helicopter crash a week ago, at a Bangkok temple on Sunday on the second day of a ceremony due to last one week.

JAMIE Vardy kneeled in prayer as he paid his respects to Leicester City chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha in Bangkok.

Leicester City players after defeating Cardiff City by a lone goal in an emotional filled atmosphere on Saturday, jetted to Thailand participate in the week-long funeral of Srivaddhanaprabha who died along with four others shortly after the game at the Kings Power Stadium.

The Dane, 32, reportedly ran towards Vichai's helicopter after it crashed into a auto park killing him and four others on board.

The entire Foxes playing and backroom staff gathered around the centre circle for a minute's silence ahead of kick-off, with Kasper Schmeichel - reportedly a witness to the scene of the crash - appearing particularly emotional.

"I am confident when I saw my players in the training session that they can give their best".

"It is something that will stay with me, unfortunately".

"It was tough all week", Leicester manager Puel said.

"All the memories we've made together as a family, without him it would have never happened so again, overwhelming sense of pride to be part of it".

"Wes (Morgan the captain) said a bit, I said a bit".

Many felt Probert demonstrated a complete lack of understanding and common sense in booking Gray given the sensitive and raw nature of last weeks tragic events that has united the footballing world. Everyone wanted to chip in.

Schmeichel, who faces another emotion-packed game this Saturday when Leicester play their first home match since the tragedy against Burnley, said Vichai transcended the traditional image of a Premier League club owner.

"When he took over this club it was in a pretty precarious situation, and to build what he has is quite incredible".

"I think everyone's going to have different reactions to it, some people will be affected more than others but I think the main thing is all coming together even stronger and making sure that we do Vichai proud".

"It doesn't matter who you are or what kind of position you have at the club".
