Welbeck sorry Man Utd sold "good kid" Morrison

Danny Welbeck is sorry to see Ravel Morrison sold by Manchester United.

Morrison, who is a good friend, was sold to West Ham United on deadline day after manger Sir Alex Ferguson ran out of patience with the teenager's magnetic attraction to controversy.

"It will be tough for him to ditch his reputation because everyone will have the natural instinct that 'Ravel has done this again', but he's a good kid at heart," Welbeck told the Guardian.

"I really hope he can get in the Premier League and show everyone what he can do. I just wish it was at United. Saying that, United have got so many good young footballers. There was all this hype around Ravel but not everyone is seeing the likes of Larnell Cole, Jesse Lingard and Paul Pogba, who are just as good in different ways. Sometimes I train against Larnell and Jesse and think I'm playing against a little Iniesta and Xavi. "I really hope they can make that step up."
