It is one of the greatest sporting triumphs ever seen and for Leicester City captain Wes Morgan, it all comes down to an unbreakable bond between an extraordinary group of footballers. Under the guidance of manager Claudio Ranieri, Morgan and his team-mates have transformed from relegation candidates to a squad of champions – a feat confirmed on Monday night after Tottenham Hotspur dropped points at Chelsea.

With that, Leicester City’s status as Premier League champions was confirmed, leaving the skipper to look forward to lifting the famous trophy in front of the home supporters at King Power Stadium on Saturday. All that’s left to do is marvel at an achievement which was thought so unlikely at the start of the season that odds of 5000/1 were offered on the Foxes taking the first league title in their history.

Best Feeling of my Career
But Morgan and his team-mates now stand shoulder-to-shoulder as champions of England – the longest odds ever to come in on a sporting event. Speaking to LCFC.com, Morgan reflected: “It’s the best feeling of my career and I couldn’t be prouder that it’s as part of this team. 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.

“Saturday can’t come quickly enough. I can’t wait to get my hands on the trophy.”
