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.
