Iheanacho & Ndidi Send Condolences As Leicester Mourn The Loss Of Owner πŸ’”


Nigerian duo Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi posted their heart felt condolences after it was announced Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was killed when his helicopter crashed outside the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

It’s been commonplace for the owner’s helicopter to land on the pitch at the stadium following matches before flying him out of the stadium.

Per BBC, “witnesses said they saw it just clear the stadium before it spiralled out of control and crashed in a fireball.”

Srivaddhanaprabha, worth Β£3.8 billion according to Forbes, founded King Power Duty Free and purchased Leicester in 2010 when they were in the second tier of English football.

The club enjoyed a remarkable rise under his guidance, earning promotion to the top flight and then sensationally winning the Premier League title in the 2015-16 campaign. The triumph was regarded as one of the biggest shocks in football history, with the Foxes famously 5,000-1 outsiders at the start of the campaign.

Iheanacho and Ndidi both arrived on the back of the fairy-tale Premier league title triumphΒ 

Srivaddhanaprabha was a popular figure with Foxes supporters, as he would often provide free hot dogs and beers for supporters on his birthday.

Leicester’s next scheduled match on Tuesday at the King Power Stadium against Southampton in the Carabao Cup has been postponed.

Following the crash, the match between Leicester’s women’s team and Manchester United Women on Sunday in the FA Women’s Championship was postponed
