From an early age, Ravel Morrison was scouted by Manchester United and signed with his boyhood club in 2009. Impressing those within the club, legendary manager Alex Ferguson gave him the highest praise, as later revealed by Rio Ferdinand. “I would pay to watch him train let alone play in a match.

The manager thought he was the best player he had seen at that age.” We chart where it all went wrong.
