Nearly £20,000 Raised For The Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation

Claude Puel

Leicester City's Kasper Schmeichel (centre) and Wes Morgan attend the funeral of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, late chairman of Leicester City Football Club, at Wat Dhepsirindrawas on Monday.

On Friday, Leicester announced plans to erect a statue of Mr Vichai at the King Power Stadium - and Saturday's march will start at Jubilee Square, finishing at the ground ahead of the 3pm match with Burnley, their first home fixture since the tragedy.

The Italian was in charge when Leicester secured one of the most remarkable stories in football history, before his departure in February previous year, and has accepted the club's invitation to attend the game.

Leicester's players will wear tribute t-shirts for their warm-up and the first half of the game will see the hosts sport jerseys with Srivaddhanaprabha's name proudly displayed.

During the second half, the Foxes' shirts will bear an embroidered poppy symbol in commemoration of Remembrance Sunday, with a two-minute silence to be held before kick-off.

Boss Claude Puel admitted preparations for the Burnley game had been hard after a 12,000-mile round trip but said it was important to the players to pay their respects.

The attack was believed to be the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in recent American history. They were forced to return to Europe, where over 250 of them died in the Holocaust.

"Our strength, spirit and positive attitude, as well as the support of our fans, will be very important".

To echo those odds, around 5,000 fans are expected to walk from the city centre to the stadium before the Premier League match against Burnley.

Vichai was one of five killed in the crash near the King Power Stadium after Leicester's last home league match on October 27.

"Vichai was a great, respected person, both at the club and Leicester in general". "There's going to be a lot of emotion around the game, so we're going to have to deal with that, pay our respects but then we have to be ready".

The announcement came following talks between the Srivaddhanaprabha family and Leicester regarding the best way to pay tribute to the man who took them to a level beyond their wildest dreams.
