Schmeichel proud to be part of the Leicester 'family'

Leicester City manager Claude Puel has praised his side's "dedication and concentration" after an emotional 1-0 win over Cardiff City in its first game since the death of owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

The popular billionaire, along with four other people, were killed when his helicopter crashed and burst into flames as it left the King Power Stadium on 27 October.

Prominent figures in Thailand's music and sporting scene were also in attendance to honour the odds-defying life of Vichai, 60, who along with four others died in a helicopter accident moments after they departed the football club's pitch a week ago.

Elsewhere, Newcastle United claimed its first league win this season by beating Watford 1-0.

Leicester's players wore t-shirts during the pre-match warm-up bearing an image of Srivaddhanaprabha's face and the words "The Boss", the title he was known by at the King Power Stadium.

Gray looked to the heavens and all of Leicester's players, including goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, raced to the corner of the ground where their fans were celebrating.

Tributes have poured in for Srivaddhanaprabha from across the footballing world and Leicester returned to action for the first time since the tragedy on Saturday, winning away to Cardiff.

Demarai Gray scored with a low finish in the 55th and celebrated by removing his jersey to reveal an undershirt on which was written "For Khun Vichai".

His body arrived in his native country on Friday, ahead of the traditional ceremony. "It'll be massively important we attend", Jamie Vardy said of the funeral plan.

After the final whistle, the Leicester players and backroom team stood and applauded with their fans long after the game had ended. We wanted to be together about this, because we've all lost what feels like a family member.

They are team captain Wes Morgan, defenders Harry Maguire, Christian Fuchs and Ben Chiwell, midfielders Wilfred Ndidi, James Maddison, Marc Albrighton and Andy King. "We know what his wishes were".

Defending resolutely amid prolonged spells of Cardiff possession, Schmeichel believes it was not a game for tactical nous, but maintaining focus.

"It has not been an easy week, we had to try and hold our emotions in today and do the best we can".

"It's a very hard time for his family and I'm here to show support", said Kiattisak Senamuang, a former Thai national football team coach and player.
