Leicester City, who have just won the English Premier League Football Cup, have been told by the Thai owners of the club to behave themselves on their tour of the Kingdom this summer. The order made it clear – do not repeat the shenanigans of three Leicester City Players last year who were fired after participating what was reported to be a racist orgy during a trip to the home land of billionaire club owner Vichai Srivaddhananrabha.

leicester win the cupAiyawatt, the son of Vichai, and Leicester’s vice-chairman is keen for the team to go back to his country where the team’s popularity has soared thanks to their incredible performances this year – winning the cup and beating the 5000-1 odds. He said he has taken precautions against a repeat performance of players Adam Smith, James Pearson and Tom Hopper who found fame when raw footage of the orgy emerged online rather than for their football skills.

Aiyawatt said he wants the team to see how friendly and welcoming Thai people are and he is sure the team wish to thank their Thai supporters. He went on to say that he understands the players need privacy, but has reiterated to them that they must treat everything and everybody with respect.

Aiyawatt, who is referred to in Leicester by his nickname, Top, did not go into detail about the discussions he had with Nigel Pearson following last year’s trouble but said he had little option but to find a new manager. “It was difficult, I understand the situation but it’s happened – we have to find the right way for the club so I had to make the decision.” One great side effect of that decision was his need to appoint Claudio Ranieri as the new manager who exceeded all expectations by taking his team to victory.
