Recently, a news report revealed that Ravel Morrison was invited to meet Mark Curtis (football agent) and was pressurized by Sam Allardyce (manager of West Ham) to accept the courteous offer of becoming Curtis’s client. The same report claimed that because of the pressure from Allardyce, Morrison had planned to leave the English football club- West Ham in summer. Morrison has become very disappointed with the club as well, suggested the report.
When Sam Allardyce got to know about the report, he denied it outright and said that Ravel Morrison had a bright future ahead of him with the West Ham club. Allardyce claims that no bitterness has cropped up between West Ham and Morrison in relation to the football agents. According to him, the representatives of Morrison might have made the allegations or rumors. But he is adamant about the fact that he did not sit beside Morrison and pressurize him into signing anything with any football agent.
Mark Curtis (agent) having links with Andy Carroll, James Tomkins, Sam Allardyce, Jack Collison, Adrian, Jussi Jaaskelanian, Nolan etc also dismissed the rumors related to Ravel Morrison as nonsense.
Currently, Morrison is playing on loan for Queens Park Rangers. On 22nd February, 2014 Ravel Morrison will play for QPR in a match against the Charlton Athletic because he has recovered from his groin injury. In the past, Sam Allardyce also mentioned that Morrison was not representing West Ham because of the groin injury only.
Ravel Morrison’s performance with West Ham has been extremely impressive and there was a high possibility that he would be a part of the World Cup 2014 squad that will be created by Roy Hodgson. But now it seems that Morrison will not get this ultimate chance.
Morrison’s contract with West Ham will expire next summer and he might not agree for an extension.

Ravel Morrison’s to be featured in England for the 2014 World Cup can become a reality according to Sam Allardyce. The 20 years old midfielder of West Ham has been in great form this season.
Morrison has been a regular starter for Allardyce in this season and in one of the few matches that he was sidelined, when arriving into the pitch he made a huge impact. He created 3 chances for his team to score and provided 1 amazing assist for Joe Cole’s goal against Fulham as he showed everyone why he should continue being placed into the starting lineup for his team.
His consistent line of fine performances have made Allardyce speak his mind about what he thinks Morrison’s situation is regarding him being placed into Roy Hodgson’s lineup of players for England.
Allardyce said: ‘It’s a long way between now and the World Cup squad being picked. He’s going to have to continue his improvement to be – or have any chance of being – considered for that squad of players going to the World Cup.
‘It’s a nice goal for him; I don’t think there is anything wrong with that dream. Without dreams you can’t be successful trying to achieve those dreams. He can make that dream a reality.
‘Not too many people reach their ultimate goal in life. When you have that chance, if you are dedicated enough in your time on and off the field then you can get there.’
West Ham currently are trying to keep their heads above water as they are barely surviving the bottom relegation zone of the Premier League but will have to continue adding points to maintain a safe distance away from the relegation.
They are hit with a few setbacks as Winston Reid, Stewart Downing, Alou Diarra and Ricardo Vaz Te all are out with injuries and won’t be able to play against West Ham United.
