Hodgson - Leicester Have Dealt with Recent Events Extremely Well

14 December 2018

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson concluded his pre-match press conference this week by reflecting on the recent tragedy which occurred at Leicester City this October before the two clubs face one another on Saturday.

When asked about how Leicester as a club responded to the passing of chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha when he and five others lost their lives, Hodgson offered, "They have done very well. It must be a very difficult situation for them.

"The whole football world, myself and Crystal Palace Football Club included, our hearts went out to them and they had every bit of empathy that we're capable of giving. But they've dealt with it extremely well. I think the other clubs where they've gone to play have dealt with the situation well.

"One can only hope that the grieving process is well on its way and they will have to come to terms with the loss of someone very, very important to them as a club."

Leicester travel to London to face Palace in a 15.00 kick-off at Selhurst Park.
