Fifteen days after the tragic helicopter accident, with the death of the owner of Leicester Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, the emotion is still alive in the city of Leicester. For the home club's first game against Burnley, Foxes fans were keen to pay a last tribute to the Thai.
Thousands of Leicester supporters first took part in a march from the center of Midlands to King Power Stadium. Many fans were wearing club jerseys, some with the name "Vichai" flocked in the back. Others have sung, or brandished flags and banners in support of the club.

The tribute continued in the stadium. During the warm-up, the Leicester players sported a black t-shirt with the image of their former president, flocked "The Boss". On this jersey, the badge of the club is surrounded by these words: "Khun Vichai, forever in our hearts" ("Mr. Vichai, forever in our hearts"). These words were also posted in the stands, on banners deployed by the supporters.
Just before the match, two minutes of silence were observed by the stadium and the players of both teams.
