Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has congratulated his former side
Leicester City for winning their first-ever FA Cup trophy, and also paid tribute to the
club’s late owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha
Maguire spent two seasons at the King Power Stadium before joining Manchester United
in 2019 for a world-record fee for a defender.
Maguire was at the club when Leicester owner Srivaddhanaprabha tragically lost his
life in a helicopter in 2018.
Writing on Instagram following Leicester’s win, Maguire wrote: ‘Vichai will be smiling,
Tielemans and goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, who made two crucial saves late on to
deny Chelsea a goal, also paid tribute to Vichai and his son Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha,
who took over the club following his father’s death. ‘It was a really nice goal to score in
the final of an FA Cup,’ Tielemans said.
‘I did it for all the Leicester fans, I’m looking up and I see our president, his father
would have been proud. ‘Even though I didn’t know him it is for his family, his club,
and his legacy.’ Schmeichel added: ‘We have a picture on the inside of our shirts so
he’s always with us. This is what we’ve dreamt of and talked about for so long
