It was all going so well for Premier League club Leicester City.
The Foxes had just secured a second consecutive season of soccer in England’s top division, and Nigel Pearson’s team was all set to head off to Thailand for a celebratory end-of-season tour.
Now, it’s all gone horribly wrong. Three young Leicester City players, including Pearson’s own son, engaged in and videotaped a racist orgy with a local Thai woman.
This despicable incident is made worse by the fact the club’s owners, Vichai and Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, are Thai.
Leicester also has a partnership with the Tourism Authority of Thailand, and that will undoubtedly be damaged in the wake of what happened in that Bangkok hotel room.
A Leicester City statement was recently released concerning the matter, reports Elite Daily.
It read, Tom Hopper, James Pearson and Adam Smith would like to convey their sincere apologies for their behaviour — to the women involved in the incident, to the Club and its owners, to the Club’s fans and to their families.
A further investigation will decide the players’ fates.
