Manchester United had one of the most talented English players in recent years on their books a couple of years ago, when Ravel Morrison was tearing it up at youth level and looked a real prospect for both club and country.
However he sadly chose not to work hard, and that certainly cost him his career at the very top. Morrison, now of SS Lazio, has been speaking out about the whole situation.
When asked if United let him go too soon, Morrison said: “No, I have to be honest about this.”
“Manchester United and Alex Ferguson gave me too many chances. I don’t think they would have given any other player the amount of opportunities they gave me. I can only blame myself and not look for excuses.
“A lot of the things I did wrong at United was silly stuff. It wasn’t because I was involved in robberies. It was more messing about playing computer games and hanging out too much with my friends when I should have been more dedicated to training.”
At the end of the day Ravel is right. He had plenty of chances to prove his worth to Manchester United but more often than not he chose the wrong option. That led to him being sold to West Ham, and now he finds himself over in Italy.
Its a real shame because he could’ve been something special at this club, and that chance has certainly passed him by now.
