Ostersunds coach Burchnall: Morrison deserved better press for Mexican form

Ostersunds coach Ian Burchnall is delighted with the early impact of Ravel Morrison.

The former Manchester United and West Ham midfielder moved to OSK last mont from Lazio.

Burchnall stated: "He has not received the credit he deserves to have signed for one of the top clubs in Europe in Lazio and then he went to Mexico (on loan) and made it fantastic there - and it is no joke to go to Mexico and perform.

"There aren't many who talked about it, but he has done great things in Mexico, now he just needs to get in shape and play again when he had a period in Lazio where he didn't play. He has come here and been humble, gone straight into the group, trained hard and I think that the way we play football combined with that there are Englishmen here makes it easy to settle."
