Ravel- the skill of Giggs, the temperament of Gattuso

Ravel- the skill of Giggs, the temperament of Gattuso

It was with a heavy heart I read a headline on the Guardian’s website which stated that one of the most gifted younger players at is facing yet another assault charge.

Ravel has long been a favourite of ours at Redflagflyinghigh as we’ve been quick to jump to his defence in the past for the misdemeanors which have blighted his career.

In fact when I was recently asked by Hedd Magazine to submit an article on youngsters I felt were ‘on the brink’ of becoming first team players in the English Premier League, Morrison’s was the first name that sprang to mind.

The Wythenshawe born youngster’s problems have been well documented and this is the latest debacle which could derail his promising career.

The Guardian notes:

“Morrison, tipped to be one of the pre-eminent English footballers of his generation, appeared at Salford magistrates’ court on Wednesday charged with assaulting his girlfriend and causing criminal damage.

“The 18-year-old is already the subject of a 12-month referral order after appearing at Trafford court, then aged 17, in January on a separate matter.

“The latest incident allegedly took place on 19 April, the day before helped beat Chelsea to reach the FA Cup final. Morrison was given conditional bail and the case was adjourned until 25 May, when he will enter a plea.”

They say you’re innocent until proven guilty and I for one will be getting behind the prodigiously talented Morrison as long as he’s a player. If -and it’s a big “if”- he is found guilty of assaulting his girlfriend then my support, many other Red’s may not be quite so forthcoming for the troubled lad.
