RAVEL MORRISON FACES the prospect of being frozen out at Lazio completely after he refused to join a club in Serie B.

The 23-year-old former Manchester United midfielder, once considered one of English football’s top prospects, has played just 53 minutes in Serie A this season, and was linked with a move away on deadline day to Bournemouth and Aston Villa.

Salernitana are currently battling relegation in Serie B and are also owned by Lazio president Claudio Lotito, who admits that Morrison rejected the loan move.

“[Edson] Braafheid and Morrison refused to join Salernitana and I cannot force them to accept,” Lotito told Metropolis.

They are players of quality for Serie B, I’d say worthy of the Champions League. I tried to the last moment of the transfer window, but was unable to convince them.

“I had also promised them some bonuses, but now they will stay at Lazio where they don’t play.”
