Burnley defender Ben Mee knows it is going to be an emotional afternoon when they face Leicester City on Saturday.
It is the first game back at the King Power Stadium for the Foxes players since chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was tragically killed, along with four others, in a helicopter crash just outside the stadium last month.

Mee, who had a loan spell with Leicester earlier in his career when he was a Manchester City player, knows it will be a tough afternoon for everyone.
He told the Lancashire Telegraph: “I’d met him when I was there. The success at the club was there after I left, he was new to the club when I was there, but I had met him.
“It was really sad, you just don’t expect something like that to happen. My thoughts go out to all involved, the family of the chairman, the pilots and everyone involved. “He brought Sven in, who brought me in to the club at the time.
I had a little bit of a connection there and a connection with the club. It was really sad to see and such a freak thing to happen.”Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
