EPL: Crazy talent, dribbles everybody – Macheda names Man United star who wasted potential

Former Manchester United striker, Federico Macheda has named Ravel Morrison as one of the club’s most gifted youth players.

But Macheda feels Morrison, his former teammate, wasted his potential as a footballer.

Macheda, who is now plying his trade with Turkish side Ankaragucu, broke onto the scene at Manchester United with a memorable late winner against Aston Villa at the age of just 17 back in 2009.

Macheda was in the Red Devils’ youth setup alongside the likes of Paul Pogba and Danny Welbeck but Morrison outshone them all.

During an interview with Rio Ferdinand’s FIVE YouTube channel, Macheda was asked which player from his age group he thinks did not meet the expectations of the football world and he instantly replied: “I would say Ravel Morrison. He was a great, crazy talent.

“This guy was a crazy man. He would come up in the first team and start to dribble [past] everybody, and everybody was shocked.

“When you watched him play you expected him to be the next [big] thing, you know, because he had everything.

“The Man United team then had crazy players, so to come up to the first team and do the things he was doing was just crazy.

“Yeah he would just go and get the ball everywhere and start to do crazy things.”
