Leicester City skipper Wes Morgan is no stranger to signing contracts being a footballer and all, but a recent one that he has penned with rum brand Captain Morgan is arguably his most bizarre.
After the Foxes stormed to a shock Premier League title win last season, Morgan and his teammates became great marketing assets, particularly for alcohol brands that share a name with one of their star players.
Morgan tweeted to his 75,700 followers details of his partnership with the drinks company, which stipulated that the defender needs to shout “There’s only one Captain Morgan” every time he orders a drink.
The contract also states that any customers who have had one too many must be told: “Only anchors go overboard. Please drink responsibly.”

The strange details of the agreement seem to have amused Morgan, but he and his teammates have not been having a laugh riot on the pitch in the Premier League this season.
Aside from an impressive 4-2 rout over Manchester City, Claudio Ranieri’s side have won just four of their 16 top-flight games and currently sit 14th in the standings, four points above the relegation zone.
