Hands up if you remember Ravel Morrison. 

The former Manchester United youth prodigy/bad boy turned wilderness dweller has produced a wonderful goal for new side Atlas in Mexico's Liga MX, showcasing he still has the ability that once had Sir Alex Ferguson raving.

In only his second appearance for for the Mexican side, Morrison beat a Club America defender with a neat step-over before firing a sizzling left-footed low shot past the 'keeper at his near post. 

Morrison - who is on loan from Lazio - decided to switch continents to resurrect his career that has been somewhat damaged by his questionable attitude. 

Between 2012 and 15, Morrison had an unsuccessful stint at West Ham, making just 18 appearances in the four years. 

He played under Sam Allardyce, who referred to the 24-year-old as the "biggest waste of talent" he had seen. 

Having only made 78 career apps since signing a professional contract with Manchester United back in 2010, Morrison has struggled to nail down a regular place at any side he has represented.

The midfielder has been troubled with numerous run-ins with the police, something that many believe has stunted his progression. 

His move to Atlas is a new test for the former QPR man, but it remains to be seen whether he will push on with his career out in Mexico.
