Leicester City players to be rewarded with £32k Mercedes for Premier League win
Every member of Claudio Ranieri’s squad could be in line to receive a Mercedes B-Class Electric Drive
Leicester’s Premier League heroes could be in line for a special gift in the weeks ahead.
The club’s chairman, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, is reportedly keen to give every one of the title-winning players their own CAR as reward for their efforts this season.
According to the Daily Mail , the Thai duty-free billionaire will gift each member of Claudio Ranieri’s squad with the same vehicle: a Mercedes B-Class Electric Drive, which usually costs in the region of £32,000.
There has also been talk of Srivaddhanaprabha – Thailand’s fourth richest man – whisking the playing squad off to Las Vegas to celebrate this summer… something it seems the American city’s press office is keen to pursue:
@LCFC can you follow us so we can DM you? Thanks!!

It has been a week of celebration for the Foxes, since Tottenham’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea confirmed the destination of the title.
The players, who watched that game at Jamie Vardy’s house, later went for pizza in the city centre and signed autographs for fans .
There were then some larks with a Vardy look-alike , while captain Wes Morgan got into the spirit of things by buying drinks for some 55 punters at a bar in the city.
Next up for Leicester is Saturday’s Premier League game against Everton at the King Power Stadium. They will lift the Premier League trophy after that game, no matter what the result.
