According to the Foxes manager, Brendan Rodgers, the fight the team has put so far in the Premier League would make their former chairman happy.

On October 27th of last year, Leicester City chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was killed in a helicopter crash outside King Power Stadium.

And today manager Brendan Rodgers has said that the way the team is playing would make the former owner proud.

“It’s certainly something that, having come in here, I really got to understand and recognize what an important figure he was,” he told Four Four Two.

“I think the feeling that he gave people and players and staff, you cannot buy that. He was close to many people at the club and the players had that real affinity with him, and still do.”

“He was a fighter, he wanted his teams to fight, and he wanted his people to fight for the very best,” he added.

“And I think that’s what we see in the performances of the players in what we’ve tried to do since I came in.”

Rodgers continued saying: “I think that Sean’s teams are super organized. They all know their job.”

“Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood upfront – they are a threat, they work tirelessly. They’ve got very good players.”

“You know they play a system that isn’t complicated but they work it very well. They fight for every ball,” he concluded.
