Buddhist monk attributes Leicester's title bid to good karma

Leicester City's extraordinary season is truly difficult to explain.

The Foxes were bottom last April and are now four games away from being crowned Premier League champions. It's a remarkable turnaround that takes some analysis.


Perhaps it's their impressive work-rate that has put them top, or the tactical nous of Claudio Ranieri. Or the goals of Jamie Vardy, or Riyad Mahrez' pace.

Fortunately, this season-long question has finally been answered by a Buddhist monk.

Presumably someone must have asked him.

Good deeds pay off

Phra Prommangkalachan, who resides at temple in central Bangkok, told The Daily Mail that Thai owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has good karma, and that is the reason his side are doing so well.

"It's Vichai's good deeds that help garner support from fans across the world which became the power for Leicester City Football Club.

Something magical has certainly taken place in the East Midlands for them to enjoy such a miraculous season.

'I believe that all the good karma that Vichai has made will be a factor that helps Leicester to definitely win the Premier League.'

Leicester blessings 

Vichai - who, incidentally, is a multi-billionaire - has been building up support in South-East Asia, but his project hasn't always gone to plan due to incidents like Leicester players racially abusing Thai prostitutes on video.

There should be no recurrences of such problems, however, as the blessed monk plans to visit England soon - and will even pray over the King Power stadium to ensure the good fortune continues.

Spurs and Arsenal must be wondering how they didn't think of that.
