Former Manchester United prodigy Ravel Morrison put in a man of the match performance in his competitive first team debut against Blackburn on Tuesday night.
Morrison made a decisive assist to Oliver Norwood on the edge of half-time, helping the Blades to a 2-1 victory over Tony Mowbray’s side.
The 26-year-old was regarded as one of the most talented players to come out of the academy in years, and was highly-rated by then boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
Attitude problems and injury setbacks halted Morrison’s career, but it’s great to see Chris Wilder give him a chance at a Premier League side and we hope to see him feature in the league in the coming weeks.
Angel Gomes, a fellow United academy graduate, congratulated Morrison on his efforts.
