    Claude Puel: 'Leicester City must honour Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha'


    Claude Puel has claimed that he and his players have a responsibility to Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha to “continue the Leicester City he built” as they attempt to put a traumatic week behind them when they take on Cardiff City on Saturday.

    Srivaddhanaprabha and four other people died when the Leicester owner's helicopter crashed just yards from the King Power Stadium following the game against West Ham on Saturday.

    The club’s next scheduled fixture was subsequently postponed – a EFL Cup tie at home to Southampton that has been rearranged for Tuesday, November 27 – but the Premier League match away to Cardiff will go ahead as planned.

    “Playing football has not been at (the) front of our minds this week,” Puel said. “But for this weekend, and all the matches thereafter, we play to honour a man who did so much for our club.

    “The result is not important, but our desire, our actions to give our best on the pitch to honour our chairman, is the most important thing.

    “We have a responsibility about the memory and the work he put in place. Vichai made Leicester City into what it is. He made it a family and made a dream and we must continue the Leicester City he built.

    “We have a responsibility to play for him and perform for him. We will play for him, for ‘Top’ (Aiyawatt, Srivaddhanaprabha’s son) and his family.”
