‘Unexpectedly emotional’ – Many Nottingham Forest fans react as Wes Morgan news emerges



Leicester City have announced that defender Wes Morgan will be retiring at the end of the season.

Morgan was rejected by Notts County at the age of 15, but after spending time at Dunkirk, he signed for Nottingham Forest in 2002.

The defender made his debut for Forest in a 3-1 defeat to Scunthorpe United in 2003, which happened to be his first of over 400 appearances in a Garibaldi shirt.

In 2007/08, he missed only four games as Forest won promotion from League One, and in 2011, he scored the best goal of his career against Notts County in extra-time.

What club do these 21 former Nottingham Forest players ply their trade at now?

Wes Morgan

Morgan left for Leicester City in 2012, and the big centre-half has since won one Premier League title and one FA Cup with the Foxes.

But after making over 750 appearances in his professional career, Morgan will call it a day at the end of the season and retire from the game.

Naturally, many Forest fans have took to Twitter to react to the news, after Morgan was on their books for a decade and gave them some excellent memories.

The goal against Notts was a memorable one, but his performances were always reliable and consistent.
