Minister Grange Congratulates Wes Morgan on Leading Leicester City to Historic Premier League Win

Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport the Honourable Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange extended congratulations to Jamaica’s Reggae Boy and Captain of the Leicester City Football Club, Westley ‘Wes’ Morgan on leading his team to claim the coveted Barclays Premier League title in England.

Leicester, yesterday, wrapped up the BPL title after nearest rival Tottenham Hotspurs drew 2-2 with Chelsea in the London derby giving them an unassailable seven-point lead with two games remaining. 

“Leicester City’s story is most fascinating and will certainly be seen as one of the biggest stories in the history of sport ever. It is a special feeling and I am delighted to know that our very own Reggae Boy, Wes Morgan, was integral in creating this piece of history,” the Minister said. 

Minister Grange added that she was particularly elated by the fact that despite the odds of 5000-to-1 being against Morgan and his team at the beginning of the season, he was able to demonstrate true Jamaican courage and resilience to lead his team home to a “symbolic victory which will be forever etched in the minds of Leicester City fans and more so in the minds of fans from other major teams who were expected to lift the premier league trophy at the end of the season”.  

“As Minister with responsibility for Sport, I take great pleasure in congratulating our very own, Wes Morgan on this badge of accomplishment that has been added to his name as a local and international footballer. So, on behalf of Jamaicans at home and in the Diaspora, again, I say congratulations Wes on this remarkable achievement,” Minister Grange said.   

Wes Morgan will lift the Premier League trophy with his Leicester City teammates on Sunday, May 08, 2016 at the King Power Stadium.
