The Foxes won 2-0 at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday to progress 3-2 on aggregate.

It continues a fairytale 12 months for Leicester following their Premier League triumph last season.

“I’m not sure if it will happen again but we did it,” Morgan told BT Sport.

“We proved a lot of people wrong and pulled off the impossible again.”

Leicester, who are still battling for survival in the Premier League despite successive wins under new boss Craig Shakespeare, now go into Friday’s quarter-final draw.

Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Juventus are among the teams they could play for a place in the last four.

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon said after his side sealed their place in the last eight by beating Porto on Tuesday that Leicester are the team to avoid in the next round.

“We will take whoever comes,” added Morgan.

“It is a fantastic night for Leicester. We still need to concentrate on the league but we will enjoy this moment.”
