Riyad Mahrez pays tribute to "special" Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha after scoring Wembley victor

Leicester helicopter crash: Blackpool to pay tribute to owner who died in tragic incident

Tributes have been paid to the Leicester City owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who was killed along with two staff members, a pilot and another passenger when his helicopter crashed on Saturday night.

Watch the highlights as Manchester City returned to the top of the Premier League table after Riyad Mahrez's Wembley victor in a tense and emotional encounter against Spurs.

Mahrez pointed his fingers to the sky in what appeared to be a tribute to Vichai. However, the 27-years-old thoughts were with Srivaddhanaprabha, the owner he worked under before his summer move to Manchester.

Mahrez, who played 179 times for the Foxes between 2014 and 2018, said he had found it hard to sleep. "Such a special person and a very big heart".

'He did a lot for me and Leciester and it is hard to speak about.

"Of course we are very good side, I'm not saying the opposite, but if you are going to play in the later stages of big competitions we need things we don't have at the moment".

Sky Sports News understands the pitch is not due to be relaid, and the current surface will not have enough time to return to its best with just seven days until their next home game at the national stadium against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League. I spent four-and-a-half years there and I have many memories with him.

A minute's silence is due to be held at De Montfort University and at the University of Leicester to remember the victims of the crash.

"I always wanted to play".

"When I scored, I put my hands up to the sky for him". He was very passionate about football.

"Both teams like to play out from the back and to play football in these circumstances, it was very hard".

City coach Pep Guardiola said there was never any chance he would leave Mahrez out.

"It was a good victory against a tough opponent, the most physical opponent I have faced in my career", Guardiola said.

Playing on the scarred Wembley turf just 24 hours after it was damaged by an National Football League fixture, City's peerless quality and a predatory finish from Mahrez helped them ignore the pitch problems. I know he would have wanted me to play.

"He did really good, he was focused and did a great job".
