Leicester to wear two different kits for Saturday’s clash with Burnley

Leicester will wear two different kits for Saturday’s emotion-charged game with Burnley .

In the first half they will wear shirts with the name of the late club owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha embroidered into them while in the second half they will play in shirts with the traditional Remembrance Day poppy.

Fans will be given an assortment of gifts to celebrate the life of the Thai billionaire who was killed when his helicopter crashed leaving the last home game against West Ham .

Supporters will be handed scarves, pin badges, clappers and special programmes to commemorate the life of the man who became known as The Boss.

The club have also announced plans to respectfully relocate the thousands of floral tributes at a new site close to the crash site.

The club have asked supporters to make their way to the ground early because of potential congestion caused by a walk from the city centre to the King Power Stadium which is expected to be taken by around 20,000 supporters.

There will be a two minute silence before the game and a tribute video to the late chairman will also be screened at around 2.45pm.

Leicester ’s players return to full training on Thursday as they prepare for the game.

Claude Puel’s squad get down to business in earnest after a whistlestop trip to Bangkok to attend the funeral of Khun Vichai.

Flying out for the funeral ceremony means the Foxes squad have hardly had a minute to get back into any kind of normal routine.

Leicester’s players travelled to the Far East straight after the weekend victory over Cardiff and returned on Tuesday after a 15-hour return flight.

The Foxes won 1-0 at the Cardiff City Stadium courtesy of a Demarai Gray goal, but Saturday’s match promises to be even more of an emotional occasion.
