From left in this photo taken Monday in Leicester, Aiyawatt "Top" Srivaddhanaprabha and Leicester City Football Club (LCFC) stars striker Jamie Vardy and goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel regard a field of tributes left by Leicester residents to honour Aiyawatt's father, club owner and King Power tycoon Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha. I just want us to have the capacity to give our best and to honour the chairman, remember what he brought for everyone in the club and the fans.

Puel revealed the squad had chose to go ahead with the Cardiff fixture as a group and has left the final decision over whether they play in their hands, but believes the players want to return to on-field matters.

Leicester City's players will attend the funeral of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha in Bangkok to honour the club's popular owner following his tragic death.

Puel's team, now 12th in the Premier League, are without a victory in their last three games.

In the aftermath of the tragedy, manager Claude Puel has said that this weekend's result against Cardiff City is "not important", suggesting instead that a performance to honor their fallen owner would be an appropriate tribute.

"It's going to be tough and very emotional and what the lads wanted to do was play this game and honor the man himself".

Saturday will see the royal bathing of the body and a Buddhist ceremony where prayers will be heard.

He added: "He wasn't just a chairman, he literally was part of your extended family".

"It didn't matter who you were, he always made time for you, and, as all the pictures that have been put out have shown, he was always smiling".

The squad and staff will be in Thailand for about 36 hours, visiting the temple where Srivaddhanaprabha rests.

"We are a close-knit group and one big family and one of the main reasons for that is Vichai so it's massively important".

It comes as investigators managed to download flight data and voice recordings from the helicopter.

The four victims killed alongside Mr Vichai were employees Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare, pilot Eric Swaffer and his partner, Izabela Roza Lechowicz, who was also a professional pilot.
