England football is in shock. Leicester owner’s helicopter, Thai businessman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, crashed near the stadium on Saturday night after Claude Puel’s Foxes meet West Ham (1-1). According to Canal +, there would be five deaths including the boss of Foxes.

According to a testimonial by Sky Sports , ” the helicopter took off from the lawn of King Power Stadium, as after every game, and seemed to lose control after a few seconds. The rear propeller looked defective and the helicopter crashed into the parking lot a few hundred meters from the stadium .

Owner of the English club since 2010, Srivaddhanaprabha used to join and leave the stadium by helicopter, as we often saw at the coronation of N’Golo Kant√© and his teammates in 2016. This native of Bangkok, 60 years, had made a fortune in the duty-free, airport stores, and his company, King Power, so lends his name at the stadium of Leicester City FC.
