A former Manchester United talent has admitted to Rio Ferdinand that he used to steal boots at the Red Devils and sell them in order to buy dinner for his family.
It is widely known that ex-United academy product Ravel Morrison is considered by many to be one of the best young players to come out of the club's youth system.
The midfielder, however, did not quite live up to expectations due to reported off-field circumstances, with the 28-year-old having since represented 10 further clubs across five different countries.
Speaking in a recent podcast with United legend Ferdinand, Morrison admitted to stealing boots from first-team Red Devils players in order to help feed his family.
Below are more players who didn't reach their full potential:
During a conversation for YouTube channel FIVE, Morrison asked Ferdinand: "Remember I got kicked out of the changing room for thieving your boots?"
Ferdinand responded: "Tell me if I'm wrong but you were taking our boots down to Goals to show your mates."
Morrison then replied: "Obviously I was on scholar's wage, I was young. You used to get like £250 (about R5 000) for a pair of boots. You take two pairs of boots, you get £500 (about R10 000), and go home and buy your family a Chinese or something.
"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."
