Wes Morgan

Wes Morgan

Born in Nottingham, England, Wes Morgan is a very strong defender for Leicester City, and he is the captain of the team. Morgan started his professional career in 2002 when he started playing for Nottingham Forest.

Ten years later, in 2012, he moved to Leicester and that is where he has been ever since. He also plays for the Jamaica National Team, even though he is not actually from there. But his family is, and so he wanted to represent the team and his heritage.

A Solid Foundation

Wes Morgan is the kind of player who can be counted on. If there is a game on, you can find him on the pitch playing at his very best. For example, during the 2015-16 season, Morgan played in every Premier League match, and stayed on the field from beginning to end in every single one of them.

There are only a few other players that carry the title of playing in every Premier League game during that season. The goalkeep, Kasper Schmeichel is one, and Marc Albrighton is another.

A Solid Defense

In the first couple of years playing with Leicester City, Morgan managed to thwart a huge number of goal attempts against his team. His consistently strong performances and defence kept his team from slipping away, and it was largely because of his work that the Foxes were able to start thinking in terms of offence instead of defence. With such a powerhouse guarding the team, new heights were soon imagined…and then achieved.


All of Wes Morgan’s hard work has paid off. He name was added to the Football League Team of the Decade in 2015. Then, he became the first person in the team’s history to play every single game of the campaign to win the Premier League trophy.
