“COME on City. Do it for Vichai” that’s the emotional online message Leicester City fans have sent out to their team online.

Fans asked the players to dig deep and win the trophy in memory of their beloved late chairman and owner, Vichai Srivaddhan­aprabha, pictured, who died in a helicopter crash outside the King Power Stadium in October 2018.

Charlotte Orton summed up the emotions of many, saying: “Leicester City more than anyone have shown the world that dreams can come true. The boss will be looking down on Wembley Stadium cheering the lads on. We believe in you, Leicester City.”

Anita Lee said:

“Go win that trophy. For those who can’t be there with us. For Top. And for Khun Vichai.”

Rob Hutchinson said: “Vichai had a dream. His came true. Make mine come true, bring it home, boys.” Emma Finch added: “You’ve already proved the impossible possible. Now bring the FA Cup back for the city, for Top, for Vichai and for the fans. We can do this.”

Kat Cave said: “Make us proud, Leicester! Let’s show Vichai he was right to pick our club. You can do it, we are all behind you”, while Claire Steans said: “Come on, the blues, you can win this for Vichai and he will defo be looking down on Saturday and it’s also my dad’s dream for them to win.”
