Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers said that ” He is a Leicester legend. He didn’t play top-flight football until he was 30 years old but went on to win three trophies with the foxes in his time with the club. He’ll always be a legend to this club and it’s a remarkable career that is sadly coming to an end. ”
Wes Morgan joined the club back in 2015 on a free transfer and went on to play 152 times for the foxes while scoring 3 goals in his time at Leicester. Wes Morgan played a very few matches in his last phase at the club due to problems in his back. Leicester will be playing their last game of the season against Tottenham and will be aiming to secure a top-four finish and qualify for the Champions League spot.
