Leicester City, Premier League
Under the guidance of manager Claudio Ranieri, Wes Morgan and his teammates 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 Morgan to look forward to lifting the famous trophy in front of the home crowd at King Power Stadium this Saturday.
Such an achievement for a team that was thought unlikely at the start of the season that odds stacked against them 5000/1. The Foxes, picked unfavorable at the beginning of the season took the first league title in their history.
Even with such a shadow cast above them Morgan and his teammates now stand shoulder to shoulder as champions of England against the longest odds ever to come in on a sporting event.
“ 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.” said Morgan.
“ 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.”
Many people believed that the team would never come this close and never take home the title, but just as in any ” Cinderella story”, the impossible has happened.
“Saturday can’t come quickly enough. I can’t wait to get my hands on the trophy.”
