West Ham United boss praises former Manchester United midfielder Ravel Morrison after Tottenham Hotspur win
9:43am Monday 7th October 2013 in Football
West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce heaped praise on Ravel Morrison after his spectacular goal in their 3-0 win at Tottenham Hotspur.
The Hammers stunned their London rivals to climb out of the bottom three, with Morrison scoring the third after a run from inside his own half.
The 20-year-old joined West Ham from Manchester United, where he made only four first team appearances.
Off-the-field problems were said to have hindered his progress, but his career now looks to be back on track at Upton Park.
Allardyce said: "Sir Alex Ferguson told me 'I hope you sort him out because you will have a top-class player'.
"I'm not sure I've sorted him out, he's sorted himself out. He's begun to enjoy his football which he loves so much.
"He enjoys being with the lads and listens to what the experienced players say, and can do something that nobody else can do in our side and you saw that today."
Morrison was called up to the England U-21 side for the first time this week.
