This week, we saw all the tributes being paid to the former owner of Leicester City Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha after his untimely death last week.

Everything about him has been so positive; other football clubs have all come forward to pay their own tributes and I saw ex-managers like Claudio Ranieiri and Nigel Pearson paid their own tributes to him.

They did this even though he was the one who ultimately made the decision to sack them from the Leicester City manager’s job.

The fans didn’t have a bad word to say about him. I know he has put a lot of money into the football club and he’s invested into the community too.

He was a very special person to Leicester, not just because of his investment in the club but because of the way he carried himself too.

It’s probably a rarity in football now to see owners and chairmen be thought of that way because the view is that they’re supposed to be ruthless who hire and fire before moving onto the next one.

But it seems that they ultimately respected his decision as something that was best for the football club and that whoever came in was the right man for the job.

In Pearson’s case, he’s still employed by King Power as he manages one of their clubs in Europe so they still had that relationship.

It’s been so positive and heartwarming to see all the fans pay their respects and those of other clubs too.

I did have some sympathy for Lee Probert who had to show Demarai Gray a yellow card for showing off a message of support for Vichai after he scored.

He had to do it as the letter of the law, regardless of the emotional support around it.

This will help Leicester come together. I think they have an excellent team spirit as it is, but it might create a bit of a siege mentality anyway.

They’ve had since they won a Premier League that no-one expected them to do it and this will fuse them together and help them grow stronger to keep Leicester City in a place where their former owner wants them to be.
