Newcastle Reported After Lazio Star

1:22 pm, Friday, September 16th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 5 Comments

The last thing we need at Newcastle is an undisciplined player who could cause disharmony in the currently united Newcastle squad.

There was some news in the summer that we were interested in former Manchester United youngster Ravel Morrison, who is now having a tough time of it at Lazio in Rome.

But at the time the local press reported there was no truth in those reports.

Ravel Morrison – 23 year-old attacking midfielder

The Sun is now reporting that Newcastle are interested in signing the 23 year-old midfielder in January.

Ravel had a bad time of it at West Ham for three years before he moved to Lazio a year ago and he’s done nothing at Lazio so far and has played only 8 times for the first team.

Ravel is a very good player with lots of skill, but he has a very poor attitude and doesn’t train well – so why exactly Rafa would be interested in him is a good question.

His enormous skills come with a lot of baggage.

Poor discipline has been his history in the game so far and he’s seems to be a talent wasted.

It’s much like with Hatem Ben Arfa who we see is now having problems at PSG where he is said to be unfit.

We assume the Sun report on Newcastle being interested in Ravel Morrison is false.

What do you think?

Comments welcome.

    woah – come back on and Jib is putting the boot in already.
    En garde monsieur.

    (Jib that is a bit of French – a fencing term.
    That is fencing with swords not putting up a fence around your hovel).

    Ravel would be a fantastic player in any team, if anyone could fix his mental issues.

    Surely not that desperate to give him a contract.
    Ranger all over again.

    Ed, how can you say he is a Lazio “star” when he has made a mere 8 appearances for them?
