Ravel Morrison In Deep Water Over Tweet

West Ham new boy Ravel Morrison is under fire for posting a homophobic comment on the social networking site Twitter.


Apparently Morrison was provoked on Twitter and he thus responded: “Crack head? Go suck out u little faggot your a guy that talks if u see me you try slap me I’m in Manchester every week.” The tweet was later deleted.

The Football Association have contacted Ravel Morrison to explain his comments on the site. A statement from West Ham said: “Ravel and the club will cooperate fully with the FA’s request and have until Monday evening to respond.”

A spokesperson for the Justin Fashanu Campaign commented:

“It’s disappointing to hear that yet another professional footballer in England has used homophobic language.”

It’s not the first time Morrison has been in hot water either and has seen his career marked with a few choice incidents such as an altercation with his girlfriend and witness intimidation.

Ravel Morrison was tipped to be one of the best talents ever to emerge at Old Trafford since Paul Scholes. He joined the Irons for a fee of around £1m, rising to £2m after Man Utd mangaer Sir Alex Ferguson reportedly ran out of patience with his behaviour.
