N’Golo Kante has once again paid tribute to Leicester City’s former owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha who died in a helicopter crash straight after the game against West Ham in October.

The midfielder spent the entire 2015/16 season with The Foxes and helped the team to sensationally win the Premier League for the first time in their history.

“I was lucky to have known the Chairman. I was with Leicester City Football Club for a year and during that time I met a man who was always there for the players and their needs. He always had a smile on his face and was there to spur us on before games throughout the entire season. He was a very compassionate man.”

“He cared a lot about his players, he looked after our well-being and was very generous, always gifting us presents. He genuinely cared about the happiness and the togetherness of the team and helped us to achieve what we achieved – the Premier League title. He was a great man who was very successful. He brought a lot of success to Leicester City and without him I don’t think the club would be where it is today.”

The Foxes won their first match after the tragic events against Cardiff 1-0. Today they are playing their first home game after the helicopter crash at King Power Stadium against Burnley.
