The Foxes saw their European adventure end at the quarter-final stage on Tuesday despite a courageous draw against two-time finalists Atletico Madrid.
It was a performance which came on the back of a run of 16 points from their last seven Premier League matches since Claudio Ranieri was sacked – form bettered in the top flight only by Spurs during the same period.
“If we had shown the same form all season that we’ve shown of late, we could be in a Champions League spot again so yes absolutely we can get back there,” said Morgan.
“This season has been more downs than ups, but I feel we’ve turned it around and we’re coming good.
“Now we need to concentrate on the rest of the season, hopefully finishing on a high note, and then next season we need to dust ourselves off and look forward again.”
Wes Morgan is confident Leicester can get back into the Champions League
When Leicester’s players return to training today after a day off yesterday they will be battling a hangover following the disappointing end to their European adventure. But captain Morgan suggested they should be proud of their achievements and use the experience.
“To get all the way through to the quarter-finals in our Champions League debut season is a massive achievement,” said Morgan. “It’s over now, but we can leave the competition with our heads held high.
“It has been an incredible journey. I’m not sure who thought we could get this far, but we believed in ourselves and we achieved something massive. We’re proud of what we’ve done.
“But we’re back to the league now and we’ve still got a job to do, still got a few games left and we want to finish on a high note. Our next game is Arsenal and we have to dust ourselves and move on and focus on this game.”
Danny Drinkwater was another to insist the hangover from Europe must not be allowed to linger and instead their improbable run to the quarter-finals used instead to fuel the next campaign. With six games left and 18 points up for grabs – they have 37 in 12th place now – Leicester’s players are targeting a finish in the top half of the table.

And next season they hope to be contesting for Europe again.
“Now we’ve had a taste of it, we want more,” said Drinkwater. “We have shown that there’s nothing for us to be scared of.
“We’re a squad that believes we can do things some people probably didn’t think we were capable of. We did believe we could win it – we weren’t in it just to take part.
“We just keep pushing ourselves on the training field and out on the pitch and that goes through the dressing room and through all of the staff.”
Whether manager Craig Shakespeare will be in charge next season remains up in the air. The former coach has a contract until June but has been given no assurances regarding his future.
Leicester were knocked out by Atletico Madrid yesterday
Shakespeare, 53, was suitably non-committal when quizzed on Tuesday but received a ringing endorsement from full-back Danny Simpson, who believes he has already shown enough to bag the job full time.
“Craig is Leicester. He has been there for years, all the lads love him, and he has been top class since he took over,” said Simpson.
“It is only what we expected when he did take over. It is a shame for him we couldn’t get over that next step [in the Champions League] and get into the semi-finals.
“But there will be no complaints from the players or anyone if he does get the job. Leicester have got their identity back and people back supporting is.
“We have got to finish the season strong and see what happens.”
