Leicester and Burnley plunged deep into the vastness of football in the afternoon

It was a day full of emotions and one that nobody in the stadium will forget. There were so many deeply moving images, but no more than the sight of Aiyawatt, the son of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who was running around the field after the final whistle, throwing back tears as the devotees sang his father's name.

Leicester's associates and players closely followed, along with Claudio Ranieri, Nigel Pearson and Craig Shakespeare, three of their former managers, as the club came together to applaud the fans and in particular show their support for Aiyawatt, who seemed overwhelmed by everything He left to the middle circle and held a Thailand flag.

"Forever in our hearts" was the message of the day, and the feeling of sadness was sometimes overwhelming, not only to Vichai, the former owner of Leicester, but also to the four others who died here in a helicopter crash fourteen days, Tributes were paid before. In many ways, it felt more like a public wake, and under the circumstances the game itself was largely irrelevant.

The whole occasion attracted the hearts. Leicester's players and many employees of the club had paid their honor to Vichai last weekend to attend his seven-day funeral, but for the followers, this was the opportunity to break with the humble 60s that made their dreams come true. "Champions of England, you let us sing that," echoed again and again.
