Wes Morgan says the Leicester staff deserve plenty of praise for the way they handled the death of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.
The club were hit by the news of their chairman and owner dying in a helicopter crash after last month’s 1-1 draw with West Ham and Morgan was amongst a number of players who came out to commend the Thai billionaire’s impact on the club.
As captain, the defender spent more time than most working alongside Srivaddhanaprabha and praised his vibrant personality around the club.
The Leicester squad flew to his funeral in Thailand and, having had time to reflect, the 34-year-old has paid tribute to the backroom staff at the King Power Stadium for the way they have looked after the players. “Everyone has been there to support us,” he is quoted as saying by the Leicester Mercury.
“The staff have been brilliant. “Some people have taken it harder than others, but we are a family, we’re together and if one person is down, someone will recognise it and they’ll be there for them to lean on. All of the players and staff have got through it together.”
