Iheanacho pays tribute to Srivaddhanaprabha


Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho has paid a warm tribute to the late Leicester City owner and chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.


Leicester confirmed on Sunday that Srivaddhanaprabha died when his helicopter crashed outside the King Power Stadium around an hour after Saturday’s 1-1 Premier League draw against West Ham, with Iheanacho in action for the Foxes.

All five people on board the aircraft were killed.

Former England striker Lineker starred for Leicester during the early stages of his career and remains a passionate supporter of his hometown club.

“May the good Lord accept your soul rest on boss 😭😭💔,” the heartbroken Kelechi Iheanacho wrote via Twitter.

Srivaddhanaprabha took over Leicester in 2010, becoming their chairman the following year, and bankrolled their astonishing Premier League title triumph as 5,000-1 outsiders under Claudio Ranieri in 2015-16.
