Leicester skipper Morgan still overseeing fitness after summer spent chasing down Messi and Mascherano

Leicester City defender Wes Morgan is still finding his way back to full fitness following a hectic summer.

Morgan participated in the Copa America and the CONCACAF Gold Cup for the Jamaican national team during the summer.

Despite a crazy off-season schedule, the defender has now revealed that he is still finding his way back to full fitness following a summer after defending against the likes of Argentina and Barcelona pair Lionel Messi and Javier Mascherano.

"It isn't easy but the club and the manager are trying to look after me by giving me days off when they can, and looking after me in training," Morgan said.

"I just have to make sure I recover right and am ready for the big matches.

"I don't feel too bad. It is not easy, especially with the tough hustle and bustle of the Premier League.

"But I am getting well looked after so it hasn't been too bad.

"It has been a fantastic summer, especially playing against the likes of Lionel Messi and Javier Mascherano.

"It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it."
