Ravel Morrison, a well known name in English Football, whether from good or bad stories in the media, he is definitely a talent. But where is he now?
Ravel has been on the sidelines at Italian side Lazio, shadowing the likes of Klose and Felipe Anderson. Although he has been given the number 7 shirt he only made his debut on Sunday night in the 3-0 win over Torino, just days after rumours linking him with a move back to England.
West Ham fans only saw glimpses of Morrison’s talent while he was at Upton Park and, judging by their reaction on social media, they would love him back at the club after the playmaker tweeted this:
As a Birmingham fan all I can say is good things about him. He proved his talent in the Championship and maybe he is still yet to prove it in the Serie A. However, I would have liked to see him progress at Manchester United but it weren’t to be.
Morrison was widely hailed as one of the brightest prospects to have emerged from Old Trafford in recent years, with Ferguson saying in his recent book Leading that he “possessed as much natural talent as any youngster we ever signed.”
But Morrison was beset by problems off the field during his spell at United: in 2011, he admitted two counts of witness intimidation and was also convicted of criminal damage after a row with his then-girlfriend. A year later, he was charged by the Football Association for posting homophobic comments on Twitter.
Those comments and convictions may have not ruined his career entirely, but certainly in England. Will we see him back in the Premier League? I certainly hope so…
