Leicester City players blessed by Buddhist monks before shock win over Man United

Leicester City players are reportedly blessed by Buddhist monks prior to Sunday's surprise victory over Manchester United.

Leicester City players were reportedly blessed by Buddhist monks before they went on to secure a surprise victory over Manchester United on Sunday.

The newly-promoted Premier League side came from 3-1 down to grab a 5-3 victory over the Red Devils at the King Power Stadium.

According to the Daily Mail, the monks, who were flown in from the Far East by the club's Thai owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, blessed the group of players at the stadium prior to the match.

It is believed that manager Nigel Pearson greeted the religious figures after the game by saying: "You can come every week!"

David Nugent and Jamie Vardy, both of whom scored against United, are said to have been wearing necklaces featuring Buddha figures following the victory.
