The wealthy Thai left Leicester City, especially Leicester City, and thus laid the foundation for the national championship in 2016, the football world was amazed.
In the sea of scarves and flowers as a tribute to Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha the supporters of Leicester City is also a few buddha statues. It looks maybe a little crazy at the stadium of a club in an English industrial city, but it is not. The Thai and thus Buddhist culture goes well once a bit at Leicester, since Srivaddhanaprabha the then almost bankrupt club in 2010 for 50 million euros in hands.
Buddhist monks blessed the field at the King Power Stadium and in the tunnel hang Thai congratulations, but continued to Leicester in particular Leicester City. Also because Srivaddhanaprabha that so wanted. Unlike other foreign investors, he would not compromise on the culture and the people of Leicester to work, come still mostly from the region.
