Albrighton: Leicester stars are ’emotionally drained’

Leicester City’s 0-0 draw with Burnley was the first home fixture for the club since the tragic death of club owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, and four others at the King Power Stadium.

Mark Albrighton spoke after the game about how difficult these past two weeks have been for the Premier League club.

“This week has been hard,” Albrighton told BBC. “We went to Thailand and paid our respects to Vichai and his family. It is something we felt we wanted to do.”

“It is a tough time for everyone but everyone has done their part. Every single person at this club has stuck together.”

The former Aston Villa midfielder was also quick to highlight the support they have received from the whole Leicester community.

“It’s extraordinary the way the fans have come together. Leicester fans have been brilliant for us and we need them.

“It’s going to be a tough road. The lads are emotionally drained. Today was one of the hardest games I have ever played. It’s hard to focus.”

Leicester City travel to play Brighton upon their return from the upcoming international break.

The Foxes are currently 10th in the league but will be one of a cluster of clubs chasing top-seven finish in the league this season.
