According to Sky Sports, Leicester City's owner, King Power, intends to fight a lawsuit submitted by the family of Nusara Suknamai.

Suknamai was part of the staff of the King Power and thus also Leicester City owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha. She was on board the helicopter that crashed at the King Power Stadium last year. The crash killed Suknamai, the owner and three others.

Now the family has submitted a lawsuit against King Power for 300 million Thai baht, almost £8 million, with the Bangkok Civil Court.
