Harry Redknapp has labelled Ravel Morrison as one to watch in 2012 in his column in The Sun.

Morrison has already tasted 1st team action this season in the Carling Cup, and Redknapp believes that next year the young attacker could really announce himself in a big way.

Whilst touching on his chequered past, the Tottenham manager also stated that Sir Alex ‘raves about this lad whenever I talk to him’, definitely good news in terms of Ravel’s prospects at the club.

Redknapp said,

This lad could be the great success story of 2012 — or the saddest waste of talent.

All the talk out of United is this 18-year-old wide player is the best young talent to emerge from the club’s academy since Paul Scholes, and that really is saying something.

But it seems there is a major problem with his attitude. So much so they’re not even sure if he they will be giving him a new contract at Old Trafford in the summer.

He’s already had a couple of run-ins with the law and a lot of people at the club are questioning his desire to become a top professional.

But Alex Ferguson raves about this lad whenever I talk to him. And if anyone can sort Morrison out, then it’s Fergie.

I don’t know the kid and he’s only made a couple of Carling Cup appearances but I really hope he can sort himself out and fulfil everyone’s expectations of him.

    It boils down to what is most important to this kid – fulfilling his potential as a footballer by coming to terms with his personal shortcomings and showing some maturity, or saying ‘screw you’ to all the people getting on his case and embracing the culture of his friends and the environment in which he grew up, even if he has to toss his football career on the scrap heap in order to do so.

  2. Maturity comes with xperience,moris had goten more years ahead of him to learn.Hopefuly united is right place 4 him

    Its so easy to say that he is young but how many people have a choice of making millions and being a superstar because of his abilty or being a punk on the street probably living off benefits or crime. No brainer.
    Morrison is in danger of putting himself on the scrapheap before too long. Only he can make that choice and if he listens to his mates his football career will not get going. United can only wait so long for him to grow up.
    Footballers of his age in the past have made the right choice come on make yours. Maybe Rooney or Owen who started young in the first team should invite him round to their house and say in no un cetain terms that this is what he is willing to throw away
