‘Saturday can’t come quickly enough!’ – Wes Morgan on Leicester’s title win

first_img1 Wes Morgan will collect the Premier League trophy this weekend Wes Morgan hailed Leicester’s remarkable Barclays Premier League title triumph as the best feeling of his career.The Foxes were crowned top-flight champions for the first time in the club’s history after Tottenham were held to a 2-2 draw by Chelsea on an evening of high drama at Stamford Bridge.Leicester captain Morgan was watching events unfold at striker Jamie Vardy’s house with a number of his team-mates as the party turned to delirium at the final whistle.Christian Fuchs was also among the guests and the Austria international posted a video on Twitter showing the group celebrating wildly as the title was confirmed.Robert Huth, Shinji Okazaki and plenty of others also shared the moment while a number of supporters gathered outside the gates of Vardy’s house.Former Nottingham Forest defender Morgan, though, managed to reflect on a stunning season which has seen the 5,000-1 outsiders upset the odds.“It’s the best feeling of my career and I couldn’t be prouder that it’s as part of this team,” he said.“Everyone’s worked so hard for this, nobody believed we could do it, but here we are, Premier League champions and deservedly so.“I’ve never known a spirit like the one between these boys, we’re like brothers. People saw it last season when everyone expected us to be relegated, but we fought back to prove people wrong. This season’s been a continuation of that. We’ve built on the momentum, but I don’t think anyone believed it would come to this.”He added of receiving the trophy against Everton at the weekend: “Saturday can’t come quickly enough. I can’t wait to get my hands on the trophy.”last_img read more
