Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has revealed which former Red Devils talent he thinks was a far better player than French midfielder Paul Pogba, who is one of the most expensive footballers of all time.
The Frenchman was one of the hottest prospects to come out of United's famous academy in 2012, but left for Juventus just six months later when his contract expired.
Ravel Morrison, Pogba's former youth colleague, was touted for even bigger things, but did not have the discipline to become a top professional footballer, as recalled by Rooney in a column he recently wrote for The Times.
"I remember watching Ravel Morrison thinking he had everything required for a player in his position," he wrote.
"He was brilliant. He was confident. He nutmegged Nemanja Vidic three times in the space of a minute in one training game.
"But he struggled with lifestyle and his environment, which was sad for him. I saw Paul Pogba come through, Jesse Lingard, all these players, and Ravel was better than any of them by a country mile.
"He's proof that you can't escape the fact there are guidelines every player has to obey in professional football. Some players live right on the edge of them but stick just inside and still succeed.
"Then you think how far you can go by being ultra-professional. Gary Neville, for instance. Gary's not a great football player but he worked in every minute of every training session and made the most of everything he had. He had a fantastic career through hard work. Full respect.
"Sir Alex Ferguson used to say the hardest thing in life is to work hard every day. Forget all your ability, strip everything back: if you can work hard every day, in whatever job you do, you'll be successful."
Morrison, now 27, made just three senior appearances for the English giants, and has since represented West Ham United, Birmingham City, Queens Park Rangers, Cardiff, Lazio, Atlas, Ostersund, Sheffield United and Middlesbrough.
