Leicester City Owner Drops $2 Million To Cop Team New Whips

Leicester City’s owner surprised his players by buying the whole team new BMW i8s as a thank you for winning the Premier League and then inconspicuously parking them outside King Power Stadium.

Well, almost everyone. It’s thought that Leicester City’s billionaire Thai owner put four players on the naughty list since there were only 19 new whips lined up: Joe Dodoo, Andrej Kramaric, Yohan Benalouane and N’Golo Kante.

Dodoo, Kramaric, and Benalouane were left off for mediocrity but Kante’s crime was treachery: he signed with Chelsea this offseason.

The BMW i8 is one of the dopest whips on the market right now.

The electric sports car will run you more than $100,000, so 18 of them wouldn’t cost you a penny less than $2 million.

But that’s nothin’ to a boss.

Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, owner of Leicester City, is a duty-free magnate (somebody’s been making money on that duty-free liquor) and the 9th richest man in Thailand with a net worth of north of $3 billion. He’s also a clown:

But like a good general, he takes care of his soldiers by buying them a fleet of matching blue spaceships.

What was the last thing your boss bought you?
