Simpson heaps praise on Leicester 'leader' Morgan

Leicester City right-back Danny Simpson has lauded club captain Wes Morgan for his brilliant leadership.

The 30-year old Jamaican was formidable at centre-back in the Foxes' 1-0 home win over Aston Villa on Saturday which prompted the following words of praise from his fellow defender Simpson.

"Wes has shown it from day one this season," Simpson told the club's official website.

"He's up there with the most blocks as a defender this season.

"He's pivotal for us in the centre. His organisation and getting people in and around him is good for us. He's a leader."

Morgan joined Leicester from Nottingham Forest in 2012 and has since made over 130 appearances for the King Power Stadium outfit.
