Football: No Goals, But Huge Emotions Like Leicester Honors Late Owners, Soccer News, and Top Stories

Leicester, England (REUTERS) – Leicester City split from Burnley on King Power Stadium on Saturday (November 10th), when football was shadowed by emotional revelations to late owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabhe.

Thousands of fans went to the stadium from the city center before the Premier League match, preceded by a two-time silence for Thai billionaires. Vichai was killed in a helicopter accident after the last two weeks of fighting in the city.

With Vichai's family who was present, Leicester players, who made 19,000km of Thailand's funeral service in the middle of the week, had special commemorative shirts, and almost every fan worshiped one of the specially distributed scarves with the words "Forever In Our Hearts ",

In such emotionally charged circumstances, football would always be of secondary importance, and Leicester, without this year's season, Harry Maguire and James Maddison through injury, were trying to keep the focus.

Jamie Vardy, who did not score five league games in the first half, was closest to shooting by Matt Lowton from the line and Burnley fought to avoid the fourth defeat in the league.

The game opened after a break when Chris Wood interrupted and Ricardo Pereira headed for Leicester, who first entered the league this season.

Three former Leicester – Nigel Pearson, Claudio Ranieri and Craig Shakespeare – all looked at the margin.

Subsequently, Vichai's son and city vice president Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha took the Thai flag to the central round with a crowd singing "Leicester, Leicester, Leicester".

Suzama in the eye, the vice president led the players and staff around the field as his father rang around the ground.
