Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has confirmed that Ravel Morrison has now left the football club and will not be returning to Bramall Lane.
Morrison, 27, has been with Middlesbrough for the second part of the season after failing to make an impact in S2.
He played just a couple of times in the cups, while he got just 14 Premier League minutes, coming in the home game with Leicester City early in the campaign. But Morrison’s time at the club is now over, Wilder confirmed.
“Ravel has left the football club. He’s at another club. I’m not interested in talking about him,” Wilder said. (Sheffield Star)
The Blades bosses comments come off the back of Neil Warnock seemingly having similar issues with Morrison up in the northeast. The former United manager admitting that he has spoken to ‘Ravel’ and conceding the 27-year-old has a big decision to make.
“He has a big decision in his life to make, I think, in the next six months,” Warnock said. (Teesside Gazette)
“If I can give him an opportunity I will do. But Ravel has got to do it himself hasn’t he.”
It’s just never going to happen for Ravel if Wilder and Warnock can’t do it – Our View
Nobody wanted Ravel Morrison to succeed under Chris Wilder anymore than the fans and us here at Sheffield United News.
His ability, as Warnock says, is not in question. So, what is in the issue then?
Sadly, that’s the question that people don’t seem to be able to find an answer to. Wilder’s abrupt answer today suggests that he’s not been overly impressed, while Warnock has clearly already seen something in Ravel that worries him up in Middlesbrough.
We don’t know what is next for Morrison. Only he can control that. The good thing is that is still just 27. The sad thing, though, is if someone is willing to take a punt on the midfielder.
Without being too harsh, if the likes of Alex Ferguson, Chris Wilder, and Neil Warnock can’t get you going, then who can? This one sits firmly with the player.
