Ryan Giggs says Kasper Schmeichel showed class after the tragic death of club owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha outside the King Power Stadium last month.

Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel witnessed the crash and was close to Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, and Giggs is full of praise for how he has dealt with the news considering his relationship with the late owner.

Schmeichel together with the Leicester City squad traveled to Thailand last week to attend Srivaddhanaprabha’s funeral in Bangkok.

“I’ve known Kasper since he was a baby,” Giggs told Sky Sports.

“He showed what class he’s got over the last few weeks and it’s obviously affected him deeply.

“There was a lot of respect for the owner and it’s difficult. It’s horrendous what happened, not only for the Leicester players but everyone in football.”

Ryan Giggs and Kasper Schmeichel will be opponents at the Cardiff City Stadium on Friday when Wales face Denmark in the UEFA Nations League.
