Sad Weekend Sees Football Unite

This past weekend has been a tough one to endure for football, no matter how your team has fared.

With the news that former England international and Tottenham Hotspur winger Glenn Hoddle had suffered a heart attack, well wishes were being shared all across the media after learning how serious condition he was in.

Later in the day, a Brighton & Hove Albion fan had passed away after falling ill before the home game with Newcastle United.

Worse was to come as just an hour after the Premier League draw at the King Power between Leicester City and West Ham United, the shocking news broke that the helicopter carrying Foxes billionaire owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha had crashed close to the ground.

It has since been confirmed that he, along with two crew members and two other passengers, sadly passed away in the tragic accident.

Under Mr Srivaddhanaprabha’s ownership which began in 2010 when he bought the club for £39million, Leicester City remarkably won the Premier League in 2016, having started the season as 5,000/1 outsiders.

Respects have been paid all across the media as well at the two Premier League games that took place at Selhurst Park and Turf Moor on Sunday. Everyone at TEB would like to extend their thoughts and prayers to friends, family, colleagues and fans of Leicester City Football Club.

Our thoughts are with you all at this sad time.

It really is times like these that football comes together.
