Ravel Morrison messages Berahino on Twitter, explains why he's upset about West Brom forward's situation

Saido Berahino

The former wonderkid feels the West Brom forward should playing for England.

Ravel Morrison is upset that West Brom forward Saido Berahino isn't in the England first team.

Indeed, Morrison took to Twitter for one of his randomly timed tweets on Sunday night, telling Berahino he should be a member of the Three Lions' senior side.

It's an interesting claim from a player once revered for his talent but who, similarly to Berahino, has been let down by his attitude (and a lot more frequently than Berahino).

 2015/16 GoalsAssistsMinutes Played
Jamie Vardy 9 1 802
Callum Wilson 5 0 543
Nathan Redmond 4 1 630
Raheem Sterling 4 1 597
Saido Berahino 3 0 485

As Opta stats show, Berahino is the fifth-highest English goalscorer in the Premier League so far this season.

But the fact Leicester City's Jamie Vardy has scored three times as many goals as the West Brom forward explains why he is in the England squad as opposed to the 22-year-old. If you are making an argument for Berahino, meanwhile, you may as well for Norwich City's Nathan Redmond, who has scored one more goal and registered one more assist than the Baggies man.

That said, Berahino has only played 485 minutes for West Brom and is just starting to kick into gear after a summer of transfer speculation. And it's certainly difficult to imagine Berahino not being an England player one day.
