Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand praises Ravel Morrison's attitude and form at West Ham United.

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has given credit to West Ham United midfielder Ravel Morrison for his recent form.

The 20-year-old scored what has been described as a "genius goal" by manager Sam Allardyce in the Hammers' 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Before moving to Upton Park, the midfielder was plagued by off-field issues and criticism over his attitude while at Old Trafford.

Ferdinand wrote on Twitter: "Great to see Ravel Morrison playing well & focused consistently now. That goal wouldn't make his top 3 goals show reel by the way!"

Morrison signed for the Hammers in 2012.
