Ghana defender Daniel Amartey has revealed he learned of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha’s death after coming out of a “successful” surgery.
The Leicester City right-back suffered a sickening injury in stoppage time during the 1-1 draw with West Ham as he appeared to break his ankle.
That has not been confirmed in the aftermath of the devastating events which followed as the helicopter carrying Srivaddhanaprabha and four other people crashed, killing all those on board.
Amartey took to Instagram to offer his own tribute to the much-loved chairman.
“Thank you, everyone, for your encouraging words of support, but devastating to come out of a successful surgery to learn about our Chairman who has meant so much for this Club and for all of us players.
Amartey had established himself as City’s first choice right-back of late. After the match at the King Power Stadium manager, Claude Puel praised the defender for his attitude.
