Brighton & Hove Albion chairman Tony Bloom has paid tribute to his Leicester City counterpart Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who died in tragic circumstances on Saturday evening.
Bloom said, “This is a devastating tragedy and our hearts go out to everyone at Leicester City, and all those families and friends affected by this terrible accident.
“I can only echo the words of so many, as I found Vichai an extremely warm and generous man. He was always a great host at the King Power and we always enjoyed welcoming him and his colleagues to the Amex.
“There is a unique bond between the chairmen and directors of all clubs, both in the Premier League and the EFL, and I’m sure those of us who shared those matchday moments with Vichai will miss him sorely.
“On behalf of everyone at Brighton & Hove Albion, I also send our love and condolences to the families and friends of Eric Swaffer, Izabela Roza Lechowicz, Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare.”
