A 16-YEAR-OLD Premier League hopeful was stabbed to death by two teenagers after one ‘tried it on’ with his girlfriend at a house party, a court has heard.
Footballer Ramani Morgan, a former youth player for Aston Villa and Walsall, was stabbed four times — including through the cheek and in the chest — before he collapsed in a pool of blood on February 29.
Jurors were told he was in a street fight after the party in Coventry with Sukhbir Singh-Phull, 18, and a 17-year-old boy. Ramani (pictured), from Birmingham, could not be saved despite an air ambulance doctor briefly managing to revive him at the scene.
Prosecutor Michael Burrows QC said one of the defendants had flirted with the footballer’s girlfriend and Ramani was told to ‘step outside’.
The defendants, from Coventry, deny murder and manslaughter — blaming each other for the fatal stabbing. The Warwick crown court trial continues.
