  • Leicester helicopter crash: Blackpool to pay tribute to owner who died in tragic incident

It is not yet clear whether the Premier League match away at Cardiff this weekend will go ahead.

"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.

After watching right-back Amartey pick up a horrifying injury moments before the end of a disappointing 1-1 home draw with West Ham United in the Premier League, Leicester were dealt the heaviest blow when their Thai billionaire, together with four others, got killed in a helicopter crash.

Leicester players were given the chance to vote whether to play their Premier League match against Cardiff this weekend.

A minute's silence will be held ahead of the 3pm kickoff at the Cardiff City Stadium, and both sets of players will wear black armbands.

"An announcement on the rearrangement of the club's League Cup fourth-round tie against Southampton, postponed earlier this week, will be made in due course".

Cardiff chief executive Ken Choo pledged to provide assistance to the visitors.

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


The match OHL were scheduled to play against Lommel on Wednesday has been postponed until December 4.

The bishop said his "prayers and condolences go out to the families and friends of those who died; and also to the manager and team, club staff, fans, and to all of the people of Leicester who have been affected".

"This most definitely ensured the belief that sporting miracles can happen".

On Tuesday, Leicester opened a book of condolence in memory of Srivaddhanaprabha.

Former Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson said he "could not have wished for a better boss" than late chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

The marquee, which is situated outside the club shop, will be open every day from 8am until 10pm "for the foreseeable future". An online book can also be signed via the club's website.

Meanwhile, the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) continue to conduct its investigations as it tries to establish 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.
