Criminal proceedings have been launched against the owners of Leicester City after they were accused of failing to pay £323 million to the Thai government.
Authorities allege duty free firm King Power owes the Thai government 14bn baht (£322m) from the operation of airport franchises it was granted in 2006.
Having bought Leicester City in August 2010, the team capped a remarkable turnaround in 2016 by winning English football's top competition. According to Reuters, at a hearing on Monday last week the Central Criminal Court accepted the case and witnesses will now be heard in February.
However, King Power International has now released a statement refuting that.
"[The allegations] are categorically denied", he said.
