Lazio midfielder Ravel Morrison has admitted his failure at Manchester United was all down to him, and accepts that Sir Alex Ferguson gave him TOO MANY chances.
The English attacker was once described by Sir Alex as the most promising talent he’d ever seen at Old Trafford but several indiscretions off the pitch led to a move to West Ham.
He started well with the Hammers, but soon found himself out of Sam Allardyce’s plans before being released by the club.
Despite rumours that he is suffering from homesickness, Morrison, still only 22, has made a promising start to life in Rome at his new Serie A club and looks to have matured somewhat.
When asked about why he failed to succeed at United, he told SunSport:
No, I have to be honest about this. Manchester United and Sir 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.
A lot of the things I did wrong at Manchester United was silly stuff. It wasn’t because I was involved in robberies.
Morrison has made three appearances for Lazio this season without finding the net.
But the fact he’s fit and back amongst manager Stefano Poli’s plans must be promising for both the player himself and English fans watching on hoping that one of the country’s best talents can finally come good on his potential.
With Euro 2016 approaching, Morrison must have his sights set on a regular role at Lazio and a potential call-up to Roy Hodgson’s international squad.
England are already assured of their place at the tournament going into this week’s double-header with Estonia and Lithuania.
