Ravel Morrison Reveals He Is Actually An Arsenal Fan
Ravel Morrison has confirmed he was never actually a Manchester United fan, although he still hopes they finish second in the Premier League every year.
Morrison is still known as one of the most talented players to come through the academy at Old Trafford, despite the incredible list of players that includes, but off field issues meant he never made it at the club.
Legends such as Rio Ferdinand have praised Morrison for his natural ability and fans hold a special place in their hearts for the midfielder, despite just three appearances for the club.
However, whilst United fans might still dream of a world where Morrison stars alongside fellow FA Youth Cup winning teammate Paul Pogba, the 28-year-old isn't actually that fond of the team.
Talking on United podcast, Stretford Paddock, the former West Ham player said he hoped the club always finished second behind his beloved Arsenal. "I would like United to come second in the league and Arsenal to win the league," he said.
"I will always appreciate Manchester United, but obviously, Arsenal would win the league." And the player spoke about his love for the Gunners on several occasions.

It's not the first time that Morrison has declared his love for Arsenal, although doing it on a United podcast certainly is rubbing the fans' noses in it.

When he signed for Swedish side Ostersund in 2019, the Jamaica player referenced the side's Europa League win over Arsenal the previous year. "I've come here to rebuild myself," the midfielder said following his failed stint in Italy with Lazio.
"I want to enjoy it and enjoy football again and win everything we can. It's exciting and I'm really looking forward to everything that's in front of me.
"...Now I'm with you guys. This team beat my team as well, it wasn't a great day when it happened being an Arsenal fan, because I wasn't linked with you then, but now it is all about thinking positive and looking forward to this new chapter."
Later that year, just a month before he was released by Ostersund, the midfielder took to Twitter to celebrate a win for the north London club.
Arsenal beat Valencia in the Europa League semi final first leg, winning 3-1 at the Emirates, and Morrison tweeted a heart emoji, to the annoyance of United fans.

It seems pretty clear, Ravel Morrison does not support Manchester United.
