Leicester City defender Daniel Amartey paid tribute to club owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha on Monday after undergoing surgery on a leg injury.
Thai businessman Vichai was among five people killed in a helicopter crash next to the King Power stadium after the Premier League match against West Ham United on Saturday during which the 23-year-old Amartey was injured.
"Came out of a successful surgery, but devastating news about the demise of our chairman," Ghanaian Amartey said on Twitter.
"A generous man, to whom @LCFC (Leicester City) owes everything. I'm sure, you're in a much better place. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and the families of the victims affected by this tragedy."
