Top 10 Best Defenders in World Football

#10. Wes Morgan


Leicester captain Wes Morgan has played every minute of this remarkable season for the Foxes. After a decade at Nottingham Forest, Morgan signed for Leicester in 2012 and played a big part in their promotion campaign two years later. ‘Big Wes’ was even voted into the PFA Championship Team of the Season for both of his two full seasons with the Foxes. Since then, Wes Morgan and Leicester City have only gone up and up, and the big centre back has contributed enormously to the miraculous achievements of this season. Just three defenders have more interceptions or blocks, and only six players have won more headers than Morgan. His influence is more than that. Morgan provides a towering presence and solid foundation for Leicester to build their attacks upon. His ability to intercept and pass has been fundamental to the counter attack, upon which Leicester have built their success.
