Manchester United academy has produced notable names in the past and even the present – from Busby Babes and Class of 92 to the current crop of players.

One of the prospects that was seen to be a wonderkid was Ravel Morrison. Sir Alex Ferguson described him as the best teenager he had ever seen.

Although he was talented, his outfield antics saw his time at Old Trafford over after appearing for just two games. He was latter shipped to West Ham.

Speaking to Rio Ferdinand via a podcast he opened up on why he was kicked out of changing room for stealing Wayne Rooney and Rio’s boots.

“You guys used to get like 30 pairs of boots. I didn’t mean it to cause harm but when I saw yours or [Wayne] Rooney’s deliveries, you’d get 20-30 pairs at a time, I was thinking one pair to put some food on the table at home, it wouldn’t be a big problem.” He was quoted by MailOnline Sport.

The 28 year old is currently without a club after terminating his contract with ADO Den Haag last month. He has so far played for 11 different teams in a span of nine years since leaving the Red Devils.
