West Ham’s Morrison asked to explain tweets by FA

West Ham says the English FA has asked midfielder Ravel Morrison

to explain a comment on Twitter that included a gay slur.

Manchester United sold the 19-year-old Morrison to West Ham last

week after a series of disciplinary issues.

The English second-tier club says the FA has written Morrison

”asking for his observations regarding comments on Twitter.”

The tweet has since been deleted.

A statement on the West Ham website says ”Ravel and the club

will cooperate fully with the FA’s request and have until Monday

evening to respond.”
