Leicester City players warm up whilst wearing shirts in tribute to Leicester City chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha prior to their Premier League match against Burnley FC on Saturday.
Leicester players led thousands of fans on a walk from the centre of the city to the club’s stadium as soccer returned home for the first time since the death of the owner who oversaw the team’s transformation into improbable English Premier League champions.
Harry Maguire was among players who joined the “5,000-1 walk,” which was named after Leicester’s title odds going into the 2015-16 season that ended with the trophy being collected.
The hundreds of soccer jerseys and club banners from Leicester and beyond that were placed outside the stadium in the days after the disaster have now been placed on railings nearby. A carpet of floral tributes has formed in front of a picture of Vichai and the word “boss” in blue and white flowers.
They were inspected by Vichai’s son, Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, who is vice chairman.
