Ravel Morrison may be a Manchester-born former Manchester United player – but he has never waived in his support of boyhood club Arsenal.
The 28-year-old, who left ADO Den Haag by mutual consent in January, came through the youth academy at Old Trafford and made three first-team outings before joining West Ham.
Although spells with each of Birmingham, QPR, Cardiff, Lazio, Atlas, Ostersund, Sheffield United and Middlesbrough have followed – one club holds a special place in his heart.
On a Manchester United fan podcast – Stretford Paddock, he said: "I would like United to come second in the league and Arsenal to win the league.
“I would always like United to be the second team. I wouldn’t like them to go lower than that.
“I will always appreciate Manchester United, but I would always want Arsenal to win the league.”
Before adding: “I have a little brother who is a die hard Man United fan, and he gets on my nerves.”
One fan said in response: “Kinda surprised me when I first heard that he was an arsenal fan considering he was born in Manchester & was at Utd from a very young age.”
A second added: "Just watched Ravel Morrison’s interview on @StretfordPaddck how is an Arsenal fan from Manchester.”
A third continued: “Ravel Morrison continuously saying he’s an Arsenal fan p***** me off."
With host Adam McKola concluding: “Ravel kissed the United badge, binding contract. Sorry.”
