Recently endorsed to the Premier League, Leicester City’s Thai billionaire owner and chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha yens for a top-five finish in the fireball of English Football in the impending 3 years and and he acknowledges that it will take a humongous chunk of money, probably 180 million pounds to make this delusion materialized and it doesn’t bellyache them.
He said in an interview with the BBC, “It will take a huge amount of money, possibly 10bn Thai Baht (£180m), to get there. That doesn’t put us off. I am asking for three years, and we’ll be there. We won’t take the huge leap to challenge the league’s top five clubs immediately.”
“Do we have a chance to beat them? Yes, we have, but I think we need to establish our foothold in the league first and then we think about our next step.”
Nigel Pearson’s battalion chalked up 102 points on their way to win the Championship and the manager also places the confidence on the Chairman’s speculation. He too presumes that his side can propel in Premier League in the forthcoming terms if they spend big and sign some quality players and also revamp the quality of their play.
The Foxes last qualified for European Football as 2000 League Cup Winners.
