Puel Makes Foxes Pledge

Claude Puel insists Leicester will forever play for late chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha following an emotional day on Saturday. The Foxes were held to a 0-0 draw by Burnley on Saturday in the first home game since the death of the owner.

 

Son and vice chairman Aiyawatt, known as Top, was tearful as he saluted the fans from the pitch after the game as the players did a lap of the pitch to thank the fans.

 

Srivaddhanaprabha died along with four others when his helicopter crashed after taking off from the stadium two weeks ago. A video tribute was played while thousands of fans marched from the city centre to the King Power Stadium before the game.

 

“It was a special day, a special match,” Puel said. “It was important to have it with our fans and to give our best to our chairman. “I think our desire in the club is to continue this way. His dream, his work, changed a lot of lives. All the people want to continue to perform for him and his family.

 

“It was different to last week. Against Cardiff it was the first game and another emotion. They learned a lot about themselves. They have showed their maturity in this game. It was a good thing to repeat this concentration and focus.

 

“After the game it was pure emotion. It was a fantastic connection. This connection and to see the former players and managers come back to honour the chairman shows what a man he was.”
