Schmeichel in tears as Leicester bid farewell to Vichai

The removal from the stadium took place on Thursday

The message comes after Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and four other people lost their lives in a helicopter crash outside the club's King Power Stadium last Saturday.

Leicester City manager Claude Puel led his soccer team's players as they arrived Sunday at a Bangkok temple to pay their respects to the club's late founder.

The 60-year-old Thai billionaire died on October 27 with four others when his helicopter crashed next to Leicester's King Power Stadium.

"Every single player wanted to get out there to be at the funeral", Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel said.

"That took a lot, so proud of how everyone played today, how professional everyone was".

"He took us in as his extended family and that's exactly what we did with him".

Today, the King Power empire is worth £3.8 billion (4.88 billion U.S. dollars), according to Forbes, with Vichai having been the fifth-richest person in Thailand.

Demarai Gray, a member of the Leicester squad that won the Premier League in 2016, scored the only goal of the game, revealing a T-shirt that read "For Khun Vichai" before he was mobbed by his teammates.

"I feel proud. It's been a really tough week for everyone".

The Reds meanwhile will be hoping to overtake leaders Manchester City who are only ahead by virtue of goal difference. But during the Premier League era, there's no doubt that Arsenal have been far more successful than the Merseysiders.

And who knows, Kepler may have already discovered a planet that is harboring life, we just need a more detailed view to spot it. Four years into the mission-after all primary objectives were met-mechanical failures temporarily halted Kepler's observations.

After the final whistle, Leicester's players and staff stood to applaud their fans for several minutes, taking in the chants of "Vichai" and "Champions of England, you made us sing that".

The tears shed by Schmeichel summed up the mood at Cardiff as a huge banner, a Thai flag with "RIP Vichai" and the Leicester badge, was unfurled before the game.

Referee Lee Probert looked reluctant to apply the law but quietly booked Gray under the rule that players must not remove their shirt over their head.

At Dean Court, Marcus Rashford's close-range finish in stoppage-time helped Manchester United hit back to win 2-1.

United started poorly and deservedly trailed through Callum Wilson's early goal before Anthony Martial equalised before the break.

Puel's team, now 12th in the Premier League, are without a victory in their last three games.

"We were defensively very bad". The defeat dropped Cardiff into the relegation zone, with Leicester in midtable.

Richarlison's brace inspired Everton's 3-1 win over Brighton at Goodison Park.

West Ham ended a three-match winless league run with a 4-2 victory against Burnley at the London Stadium.
