Manchester United were right to get rid of wonderkid

Ravel Morrison's form of late has led to many critics questioning Manchester United's decision to sell the England starlet. 

The 20-year-old left Old Trafford for good in January 2012 in a fee that could rise to £1 million, and despite this figure being extremely low, the Manchester United hierarchy had no choice but to let the talented youngster depart the Theatre of Dreams. 

Now at West Ham, Morrison is proving his worth in England's elite division. From scoring fine goals against the likes of Tottenham in the Premier League to scoring spectacular goals in England U21 training, it's hard to ignore the youngster. 

But United had to do just that. For the good of the player and the other youngsters at the club it was the right decision to let one of their hottest prospects leave the club. It's a shame as Morrison was a disaster waiting to happen at the Red Devils.

Many reports suggested that he was getting involved with the wrong people in Manchester and that was clearly affecting his career. It would be wrong to think Sir Alex Ferguson and the top-dogs at United didn't do everything they could to make it work for Morrison at Old Trafford, but unfortunately it just wasn't meant to be. 

Morrison's career may have never taken off if he had stayed at United and he could have become one of the greatest ever wasted talents. 

However, now at the Hammers, he has settled down and is starting to prove just how good he can become. His potential is out of this world and there's no doubt that he's an England international in the making. 

The starlet needs to be playing football constantly, he needs to have something to take his mind away from other things and at Manchester United he wasn't ready to wait, which led to his downfall. 

That's why West Ham suits him perfectly. He can star and prove his ability in the Premier League. One day he may well move on again and it's without a doubt that he could become one of the greatest forces in England. 

With exceptional ability and talent, Morrison has the chance to progress once again. Hopefully at West Ham, he steers clear of trouble and focus' on the extraordinary career he may well have ahead of him.

Any heights Morrison may now reach in the future, he has Manchester United to thank. If he hadn't left the club, he may well have struggled to ever become a success. Now he has a chance to make it.
