Man Utd accept West Ham's Morrison had no chance if he'd stayed

Manchester United officials Ravel Morrison would never have made it if he had stayed.

United offloaded Morrison to West Ham United last January.

"The so-called friends he was knocking around with are not good people and they took him off track," Phil Brogan, who scouted an eight-year-old Morrison for United, told the Mail on Sunday.

"They got him into trouble. He needed to be in a routine away from them and unfortunately that meant getting away from Manchester. Which was a shame because I think he could have lit up Old Trafford."
