Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has clarified the helicopter crash that killed club owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.
Mr. Srivaddhanaprabha had died on Saturday night in five accidents before King Power Stadium.
Cardiff's Premier League game will be the team's first team since the incident was moved to Southampton after the Mid-League League Cup game.
In an emotional interview, 31-year-old Sky Sports News said, "We need to make sure we go out and honor his name and do a performance that will hopefully win.
"We all talked about playing, which is what Vichai wanted, and we will.
"It's going to be tough and very emotional, and the boys wanted to play this game and honor the man himself."
Manager Claude Puel said the result was "not important".
The funeral for the owner of the club takes place on Saturday – several days – in Bangkok.
As the body of Mr. Srivaddhanaprabha arrives in Thailand, the mourners attend the final preparations in the temple in Bangkok tomorrow before the ceremony.
On Saturday, the royal body bath will be bathed and a Buddhist ceremony where prayers will be heard.
Puel gave the players the opportunity to travel to Thailand.
Vardy, who has shared his memories of Mr. Srivaddhanaprabha on social media, said, "It will be hugely important that we attend, we are a close group and a big family, one of the main reasons is Vichai." it is enormously important. "
He added, "He was not just a chairman, he was literally part of your extended family.
"It did not matter who you were, he always took time for you, and as all the pictures showed, he always smiled.
"These are the things you will never forget and that remain anchored in your mind."
The investigators were able to download flight data and voice recordings from the helicopter.
The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said it could receive information from the AW169 helicopter's black box, even though it was damaged by the "intense heat" of the fire caused by the crash.
The data can help show what the plane rolled to the ground shortly after launch.
The four victims killed alongside Mr. Vichai were employees Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare, pilot Eric Swaffer and his partner, Izabela Roza Lechowicz, who was also a professional pilot.
