Leicester City live - tributes to Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, build-up to Burnley clash

Signed LCFC Match Shirts Part Of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation Raffle

The Football Club has been inundated with offers of donations from the footballing world for the charity, which was renamed in honour of our late Chairman, and the raffle provides a way for those individuals and organisations to make their kind contributions to a worthy cause.

The entire squad, including Kasper and Jamie, will be given the special shirts in tribute to Khun Vichai for the first half of Saturdays Premier League fixture against Burnley at King Power Stadium.

The team will also wear embroidered poppy shirts in the second half, which will be auctioned for the Royal British Legion at the end of the month.

Jamie Vardy All other shirts carrying the Khun Vichai tribute will be made available for auction from 12 November until 19 November

Shakespeare spent close to a decade of his coaching career at Leicester, where he was Claudio Ranieris number two for their incredible Premier League title win and then became the Italians successor.

An auction of other signed shirts carrying the tribute to Khun Vichai will also take place alongside the raffle. Full details of the raffle and auction can be found below.

Entry to the raffle for the Vardy and Schmeichel signed shirts requires a minimum £10 donation, although higher amounts are gratefully received.

The ex-Foxes assistant and manager joined talkSPORT on Thursday to speak about the tragic helicopter accident which claimed the life of the clubs owner and four others on October 27.

All other shirts carrying the Khun Vichai tribute will be made available for auction from 12 November until 19 November, with funds going to the The Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation.

I was made to feel so welcome. To see all the other staff and then go out to see the players and Claude, and I have to say that Claude made me feel so welcome, I had lunch with him.

This will be followed by a further auction of embroidered match-worn poppy shirts from the Remembrance Fixture for the Royal British Legion – a cause Leicester City has raised over £250,000 for over the years. 

I felt for everyone at the club. I know the players personally, Khun Vichais family and Khun Top [the chairmans son], I feel for all of them.

GRIEVING Leicester are determined to continue the legacy of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha. It will be a tough ask in their first home game since the accident, but once the whistle blows Ben Mee can expect to have his work cut out against Jamie Vardy.

Premier League-winning assistant tells talkSPORT he was made to feel so welcome when he returned to the Foxes to offer his condolences

CHRIS Wood and Kevin Long put Burnley 2-0 up inside nine minutes in April to give the Foxes a mountain to climb in their outside chance of Europe. Vardy pulled a goal back but Burnley had done enough for Claude Puel to give up on seventh place.
