Leicester City remembers Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha on the late boss’s 61st birthday

Today marks the 61st birthday of the late football club chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

The Thai businessman died in a tragic helicopter crash outside King Power Stadium last October. He was one of five fatalities in the accident.

LCFC players Andy King, Maguire, Jamie Vardy and Kasper Schmeichel all sent remembrance wishes to their boss on Twitter.

The club handed out free beer and cupcakes at last Saturday's home match to commemorate the owner's first birthday since his death, including a special round of applause in the game's 61st-minute.

LFC is also working on a monument to pay tribute to the owner who spearheaded the club's remarkable Premier League winning campaign in the 2015-2016 season. The city of Leicester wants to install another statue of two elephants to recognize the Thai owner's contribution to the town.
