Leicester players attend funeral of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha in Thailand

The removal from the stadium took place on Thursday

An elaborate funeral is under way for Thai billionaire and Leicester City owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who, along with four others, was killed last Saturday in a helicopter crash.

Mr Vichai died with two members of his staff, the pilot and a passenger when the helicopter crashed moments after taking off from the King Power Stadium on 27 October.

The horrific accident triggered a week of mourning in Leicester and around the world of football.

"It's been a really tough week for everyone", goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel said.

"They were unified in their decision (to play the game Saturday), that it was important to them to pay respect to Vichai, by playing today and they've certainly made him proud in that sense".

And it appears the referee himself was gutted in the knowledge he had to stick to the letter of the law and grimaced after Gray run past him and took off his shirt.

Banners were shared between both sets of fans and Srivaddhanaprabha's name was sung repeatedly.

Prior to the match, each Leicester player wore t-shirts paying tribute to Srivaddhanaprabha, who was known as "The Boss".

"We're thinking about his family, we're all hurting, but I can't imagine what they're going through".

Demarai Gray produced a sharp finish to score the victor midway through the second half, a goal that sparked wild celebrations in front of the 3,000 traveling fans.

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

In total, 40 representatives from Leicester City travelled to Thailand.

Leicester are 12th in the table on 13 points, while promoted Cardiff are 17th with five points from 10 games.

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

Callum Wilson's 11th-minute opener for Bournemouth was cancelled out by Anthony Martial's 35th-minute effort as United survived a series of missed chances from the hosts.

"We were defensively very bad. The second half was much better", Mourinho said. In its first game since Vichai's death, Leicester won an emotional and highly charged match 1-0.

The win took Benitez's side out of the relegation zone at Cardiff's expense, with West Ham, who beat Burnley 4-2, also edging further clear of the scrap at the bottom.
