before 18 min.

London (AP) – Leicester City players want to honor Cardiff City's deadly club owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha on Saturday at the Premier League game.

Striker star Jamie Vardy told broadcaster Sky Sports.

It is the ex-master's first game after Srivaddhanaprabha and four other people were killed in a helicopter crash at the stadium last Saturday.

"We all talked about wanting to play," Vardy told the station. "That's what Vichai wanted, and we'll do that, we have to go out, honor his name, and show a performance that will hopefully win."

This week was one of the hardest in the history of the club, coach Claude Puel had said on Thursday at his first appearance since the disaster. "Football was out of our mind this past week, but this weekend and at all games after that we will play to honor a man who has done so much for our club," said Puel. The result is secondary.

Players could also attend the funeral of Srivaddhanaprabha, which starts in Thailand on Saturday and lasts several days. He wanted to give the professionals the opportunity to support Srivaddhanaprabha's family, the coach said. (AP)
