WATFORD fans unveiled a banner in tribute to Leicester’s late owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha on another emotional day at the King Power Stadium.
It is little over a month since the Foxes’ chairman tragically passed away in a helicopter crash following a home game against West Ham.
Prior to kick-off against Javi Gracia’s Watford, the message was unfurled in the away end and met with a standing ovation from the entire ground.
It read: “Thank you Vichai for allowing us all to dream. Rest in peace.”
Vichai’s son and Leicester vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha was in attendance to witness the touching moment.
‘Top’ was seen arriving at his seat in the King Power Stadium where he used to sit alongside his father.
Foxes fans were quick to greet him with hand shakes and messages of support.
The club’s vice-chairman was clearly moved as he puffed out his cheeks and looked out at the supporters who have shown their love for his father.
In the match day programme, Aiyawatt wrote: “It was an amazing personal gesture for Their Royal Highnesses to visit us and to pay tribute to my father and those that lost their lives here on 27 October.
“I was so proud to be able to demonstrate how this city, our community, has come together in response to the accident.”
