Lazio star Ravel Morrison has posted a cryptic message on his Twitter account in the aftermath of Sam Allardyce acrimonious exit as England manager.
The 23-year-old Manchester United academy product is currently way down the pecking order with the Serie A giants following unsuccessful spells with West Ham, Cardiff and QPR.
Morrison posted the message on his personal Twitter account less than 24 hours after his former boss had been shown the door by The FA.
This comes after The Sun reported that the former England under-21 international was dumped in the West Ham reserves after he refused to sign a contract with Allardyce’s agent Mark Curtis.
Allardyce and Curtis dismissed the claims back in 2013, but they have since resurfaced following The Telegraph’s undercover investigation that prompted the sacking of the 60-year-old from the England hotseat.
“There’s no truth in the fact that I have sat with Ravel Morrison and tried to press him into signing anything with any agent, never mind mine,” Allardyce said at the time.
Morrison was allegedly forced to play with the Hammers’ second-string side and it looks to have effected the playmaker’s career.
Lazio’s number 11 has made just seven appearances in all competitions for Italians, and has failed to make an appearance this season.
The Manchester United academy graduate was rumoured to be coming back to England throughout the summer, with Championship giants Newcastle and Aston Villa both reportedly interested.
