Leicester players to decide on Cardiff game

Leicester native Arlo White talks about the impact late owner and chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha had on the club Leicester City as well as the city of Leicester as a whole.

Multiple reports say that it will be left to Leicester City’s players to decide whether or not they will play their Premier League game against Cardiff City on Saturday.

Following the tragic death of their owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and four others in a helicopter crash outside the King Power Stadium last Saturday, the players have been offered grief counselling as they try to come to terms with the loss of an influential figure who was very close to the playing squad.

With a memorial service held at Leicester’s stadium on Monday to honor of Srivaddhanaprabha and the four other victims, many of the Foxes players were in tears and still looked in shock.

Kasper Schmeichel, Wes Morgan and Jamie Vardy were all visibly upset and it is believed both the Premier League and Cardiff are leaving it down to the Leicester players to decide whether or not the game should go ahead.
