Morrison career unravels to kickabouts

ravel-morrison-west-ham-united_3010039Ravel Morrison’s career is down to weekly five a side kickabouts!

The former Hammer – wearing a sports kit from current club Lazio – scored several goals during a 90-minute game at the Powerleague sportsdome in Trafford, Gtr Manchester, on Monday as just a handful looked on.-

A source told The Sun: ““He was just having a knockaround game, but Lazio won’t be happy when they find out.

“Professional footballers are usually banned from doing things like this in case they suffer an injury and spend months on the sidelines.”

This is the player of whom Sir Alex Ferguson said: “It was very painful to sell him to West Ham in 2012 because he could have been a fantastic player. But, over a period of years, the problems off the pitch continued to escalate and we had little option but to cut the cord.”

But his move here also failed to work out and he was loaned to Queens Park Rangers, Birmingham City and Cardiff before moving to Italy in July last year.

He has also failed to settle in Italy and only made a handful of appearances. and The Sun reports former Lazio coach Stefano Pioli(OK) as saying  “Morrison has to work harder. He still doesn’t speak a word of Italian and this has slowed his development and his integration in the squad.”

  1. what a shame and a waste of a great talent but only has him self to blame may by we could get him back for anything and do a deal with him we only pay him if he train and keep out of trouble and we can terminate his contract if he steps out of line

  2. Who’d have thunk it!

    The boy is wasting his talent – very sad!

  3. Aye, the lad has so much talent but it appears that the wiring up top isnt all connected in the right places.

  4. I’ve always been partial to Ravel and his talent, but I’m beginning to think his I.Q. is not exactly the same as that of Stephen Hawking… lol 😉

  5. It is a shame, if he knuckled down he could have been England’s best but ultimately he has thrown his career away, by the time he grows up, if that ever happens he will have wasted most if not his entire career.

  6. He should go and play for Torino. At least he’ll be able to communicate with the goalkeeper.

  7. Very sad for him. It is so painful to witness the sheer waste. I just hope he can turn his life round… that he can get some help.
    Ultimately only he can make that change.
    I wish him well
