To celebrate Leicester’s Premier League championship, Thai billionaire Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha decided to send the team a very special gift.
Accordingly, Mr. Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, also the chairman of Leicester, bought 19 BMW i8s to give to the players. The price of each supercar is about £ 100,000, so this special gift costs up to £ 1.9 million.
This racing supercar is also located right in front of King Power yard to show that the chairman did not talk. The image posted in The Sun showing the green BMW i8s symbolizing the traditional colors of “The Foxes (nicknamed Leicester) is really magnificent, just like the scene in the racing movie” Fast and Furious”.
Last year, Leicester City registered 23 players for the Premier League, but only 19 cars were given to the team by billionaire Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha. The reason is because there are 4 players who are not in the list of winners, namely N’Golo Kante, Joe Dodoo, Andrej Kramaric and Yohan Benalouane.
Kante, after becoming the new king of Leicester, left the club to Chelsea, while the remaining 3 names did not play much. Even coach Claudio Ranieri leading “The Foxes” is not on the list of supercar donations. However, the Italian military did not care about this.
“These gifts are only for them? And I am not? How could this happen, I have to talk to the chairman,” Coach Ranieri (laugh) shared with the reporter. “But I’m not thinking of expensive cars right now. I’m focusing on my match against MU tomorrow in the British Super Cup”.
As coach Ranieri said, Leicester will enter the match against MU at Wembley at 22 o’clock on 7/8. At this time, his players with Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez … are feeling very comfortable and ready for the “Red Devils” confrontation. Along with being given the supercar by the President, it will become a doping spirit of encouragement for the Leicester players.
