David Preece: What I learned from working first hand with Ravel Morrison at Ostersund

Ravel Morrison Sheffield United

Anyone fortunate enough to witness the talent of Ravel Morrison will know exactly why Sir Alex Ferguson labelled him the greatest talent he had ever seen. In my 26 years in football, I certainly haven’t seen a player with such finesse and technical mastery. And that's no exaggeration. Simply put, with a ball at his feet, Ravel’s ability is sublime.

'Enigmatic' is a cliche often used to describe talent unfulfilled, but he is far more than just that. Drop him into a training session at any club in the world fully fit – and I mean any club – and he'd have any manager making the same face to their staff as I was to the other coaches at Ostersund during his first training session with us.
