KINGSTON:
For his outstanding leadership in guiding Leicester City to its first Barclays Premier League title, telecommunications firm Digicel, one of the main sponsors of the country’s senior men’s national senior football team, salutes Reggae Boy Wes Morgan on the club’s historic achievement.
Describing it as “another proud achievement for Jamaica”, Digicel CEO, David Butler, is in high praise for the champion captain.
“Against all odds, as captain, Wes Morgan demonstrated solid determination and the will to win in leading his team to a modern-day fairytale ending. Leicester’s accomplishment will go down as one of the greatest achievements in sport and we are so proud that it happened under the captaincy of a Jamaican,” said Butler.
The inspirational defender is known for drumming up support globally for the Reggae Boyz, especially during the lead up to tackling other teams vying to qualify for the World Cup.
In March, Morgan attended the handover ceremony at Digicel’s headquarters in Kingston, where the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) received another US$3 million (nearly J$350 million) towards the development of various national teams, including the Reggae Boyz, as they take on the Road to Russia.
Morgan had tweeted a photo from the event with six other team members to further attract global support for the mission. Digicel is hoping that Morgan becoming the first Jamaican international football player to win the Barclays Premier League will add a fresh motivation to the national team.
“This will surely lift the spirits of the Reggae Boyz as they prepare for the Copa America tournament and another important series of qualifying games. When Wes is a champion, Jamaica is a champion,” Butler praised.
