Ravel Morrison happens to be one of the most naturally gifted players ever to come through the academy at Manchester United. Ravel’s skills bring to mind Cristiano Ronaldo, as he’s known to produce sublime moments of magic suddenly from nothing. He is capable of playing down either wing, as a striker or as an attacking midfielder behind the striker. He has pace to burn and is known to have a party trick.
Morrison is currently only 17 years old, he has already signed professional forms and is currently playing for the reserve side. Ravel has apparently had some troubles in his past, which he seems to have solved. The start of the 2010-11 season has so far seen a more mature and responsible Ravel. He seems to have developed physically over the summer as well.
Morrison has been prolific so far in the pre-season and has become a regular fixture in the reserve team – very impressive for someone so young, clearly showing how highly he is rated within the club. His performances during pre-season have been excellent – if he is able to maintain this form, a call up to the seniors won’t be entirely unexpected. Morrison might be a key player for England too in the coming years, being tipped by some to make the squad for the 2014 World Cup!
Morrison is almost sure to make his debut for the first team in the near future, he’s considered one of the best talents to emerge from England; he’s also been labelled the English Ronaldo. The future seems excellent for the youth from Wythenshawe, it seems only a matter of time before he emerges to become another one of the many superstars who have come through the Manchester United academy.
