Former Manchester United star Ravel Morrison has explained that he used to steal Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand’s boots at Old Trafford in which he would sell them and feed his family with the money.
Ravel Morrison graduated from Manchester United’s academy after Sir Alex Ferguson was impressed with his games, but he never played any Premier League match for the Red Devils.
He only featured for Manchester United in the FA Cup and League Cup before being sold to West Ham United in 2012 by Sir Alex Ferguson.
His career in football did not flourish the way he would have loved it to be due to some off the pitch issues he had then while at Manchester United.
According to the report on Daily Mail, the 28-year-old Jamaican explained that Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand used to get plenty boots at Manchester United.
He said to Rio Ferdinand below.
‘’You used to get like £250 for a pair of boots. You take two pairs of boots, you get £500 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.’’
Meanwhile, Ravel Morrison is currently playing for ADO Den Haag and he has played four games so far this season.
