The former owner died tragically after a helicopter accident and for Leicester City’s goalkeeper he was the best boss ever

Leicester City’s owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha died tragically after his helicopter crashed outside the King Power Stadium.

And for the Foxes’ goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, he was the best boss one could have.

“If you look back at my career, I’ve had to constantly prove myself and be compared to others. Constantly having to prove I am good enough,” Schmeichel told Sky Sports.

“Then came a guy who said he believed in me from the first minute. He said he’d seen me play and just gave me the platform.”

“I’ve been here nearly eight years now and that says a lot about the stability here and the belief he had in me,” he commented.

“Having gone from nine clubs to just being at one club, I was searching for someone who believed in me – he and his family did.”

“It’s very easy to be caught up in this world of money, fame, and fortune. He is a guy who has done all that and doesn’t care about it. He only cares about helping people,” he added.

“It just speaks to the man that he was. He didn’t need to buy a football club. That’s never a good business investment.”
