Leicester opens book of condolence for Srivaddhanaprabha

It is not yet clear whether the Premier League match away at Cardiff this weekend will go ahead.

Leicester's grieving players will take to the field for the first time since the crash when they visit Cardiff for a Premier League game on Saturday.

The son of the Leicester owner killed in a helicopter crash promised Wednesday to honour his father by continuing his "big vision and dreams" at the Premier League club.

Ranieri, whom Vichai brought in as Leicester coach in 2015, masterminded the club avoiding relegation to stay in the top flight and then led them in their sensational run to the Premier League title the next year, defying odds of 5000-1.

"An announcement on the rearrangement of the club's League Cup fourth-round tie against Southampton, postponed earlier this week, will be made in due course".

Cardiff executive director and chief executive Ken Choo was respectful of Leicester's wishes and offered his sympathies.

"As such, we will be offering our support to Leicester City in any way necessary in respect of this weekend's fixture".

The bishop said his "prayers and condolences go out to the families and friends of those who died; and also to the manager and team, club staff, fans, and to all of the people of Leicester who have been affected".

The chancellor threw her weight behind her friend in Hesse and visited him four times on the campaign trail in recent weeks. The results of the October elections in Bavaria and Hesse will be seen as a bellwether for the entire nation.

"His quiet yet authoritative aura, presence and personality have had an immeasurable influence on English football".

The book, which will be shared with the Srivaddhanaprabha family, will be opened at the stadium at 8am.

"A manager could not have wished for a better boss", Pearson wrote in a personal letter published on the website of Belgian team OH Leuven, where he has been coach since previous year.

The Foxes confirmed the book will remain open for 14 hours every day "for the foreseeable future".

The EFL Cup tie between Claude Puel's side and Southampton, scheduled for Tuesday, was consequently postponed.

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) are still conducting their investigation into what caused Saturday's tragedy.

Injured midfielder Daniel Amartey - who suffered a suspected broken ankle in the draw with West Ham which preceded the crash - missed the squad visit on Monday but attended alongside a club liaison officer on Tuesday to pay his respects, while Jamie Vardy returned on Tuesday to lay a wreath with his wife Rebekah.
