Ravel Morrison the ‘best footballer since Paul Gascoigne’

Birmingham City boss Lee Clark has hailed QPR loanee Ravel Morrison after his match winning performance at St Andrews yesterday, as reported by Sky Sports.

The West Ham youngster has made life difficult for himself with off the field actions however his brace yesterday back at Birmingham, where he thrived on loan last season, turned many a head.

Morrison was struggling to get back into the West Ham side after a knee injury and so was loaned out to QPR, where he is now the main man.

The England under-21 international has all the talent to go the top and Clark believes he could well be one of the best players in the world if he gets his head straight.

“He is the best footballer since Paul Gascoigne,” Clark said.

“If Paul Gascoigne had not done his knee, he would have become the best player in the world.

“I played with Paul. I grew up with Paul. The only thing is that Ravel doesn’t know who Paul Gascoigne is!

“He has the pace of a wide-man. He has the balance but plays in the middle of the pitch because he can manoeuvre the ball.

“Ravel can score goals as we have seen. It is what is between the ears with him and he knows about this problem.”
