TV pundit and former Manchester United defender Gary Neville is hoping that Ravel Morrison can find some consistent form after completing his move to Sheffield United over the summer.
Now 26 years of age, the midfielder has never really fulfilled his potential despite playing for the likes of Manchester United, West Ham and Lazio during his career. Neville says we have seen flashes of his talent but he would like to see the midfielder settle down and help out Chris Wilder’s side:
“The main thing for Ravel is making sure he’s there, he’s fit and he’s training and available. He has had a tough time and needs to settle. I hope Sheffield is that place for him.”
Morrison has yet to be given his competitive debut after signing a one-year deal at Bramall Lane back in July. However, Wilder has confirmed that the player will get his chance when the Blades face Blackburn Rovers in the Carabao Cup next Tuesday:
“Rav has a big part to play. He’s ready, like the others, he’s played games in pre-season. There’s obviously a cup game to go at next week against Blackburn Rovers. We will utilise all the squad in that game. They’ve got to be ready. You never know what’s around the corner in football.”
There is certainly fierce competition for places in United’s team. £10m signing Lys Mousset still hasn’t made the bench this season while £20m recruit Oli McBurnie has yet to be given his first start for the club.
