Rav's row with Man Utd flop

Filed: Wednesday, 16th October 2013
By: Staff Writer

Ravel Morrison became embroiled in a fresh row last night after the West Ham star was seen raising an arm to team mate Wilfried Zaha during last night's England Under 21s win.

Morrison - who was on his way to being named Man of the Match in England's 5-0 thrashing of Lithuania having scored two goals and made a third - clashed with team mate Zaha following a set piece.

The former Crystal Palace winger appeared to take a kick at West Ham's Morrison as the two walked back towards the centre circle, which the young Hammer reacted to by angrily pushing his team mate away.

Before the situation was allowed to escalate, Norwich's Nathan Redmond stepped in to separate the two. However the incident has been widely reported in the media this morning with Morrison - unsurprisingly perhaps, given his baggage - cited by many as the instigator.

Zaha, who joined Manchester United in a 15million switch from Palace last year recently closed his Twitter account following continuous abuse. His future at Old Trafford is already in doubt following a string of less-than-convincing performances.

Conversely, Morrison's early-season form has seen the young Hammer tipped as a potential World Cup star now that England have qualified for the tournament (courtesy of last night's 2-0 win over Poland).

The brouhaha was reminiscent of Lee Bowyer's on-field disgareement with Kieron Dyer back in 2005, whilst the pair were both at Newcastle.
