6:00 pm, 9th November 2018

The decision follows the death of Srivaddhanaprabha and four other people in a helicopter crash at the stadium on October 27.

“We will never be able to repay what he did for us – for me as his son, us as his family, everyone connected to Leicester City and beyond – but we are committed to honouring his memory and upholding his legacy,” Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, Vichai ‘s son, said in an official club statement.

“Our continued growth as a Club, our state-of-the-art new training ground and our planned stadium expansion will help realise his vision for Leicester City.

“I plan to commission a statue of my father, for outside King Power Stadium, as a permanent and fitting tribute to the man that made it all possible.

“He will forever be in our hearts. He will never be forgotten.”
