Super Eagles star Wilfred Ndidi has described the late Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha as “far too kind and supportive.”
Srivaddhanaprabha was on board as his helicopter crashed in a car park outside the club’s ground over the weekend.
Concise News understands that the accident occurred as the copter left the stadium following a Premier League match on Saturday.
The club had in a statement on Sunday announced that the Leicester Chairman and others who boarded the copter had died.
Reacting to the development, Ndidi who plays for the English club, as well as his compatriot, Kelechi Iheananacho, also a player for the Foxes, and Ahmed Musa (a former forward of the side), took to Twitter to mourn the late Srivaddhanaprabha.
Concise News captured their tweets:
You were far too kind and supportive. Thank you for all you did for the club, for always encouraging the team and coming all the way to watch me play at the world cup. Rest on sir #theboss💔😢 pic.twitter.com/RY3fjz3TLD
