Editorial Correspondent 4th Mar, 2020 Updated: 4th Mar, 2020

THE family of 16-year-old Ramani Morgan – who died after he was stabbed in Coventry on Saturday night – has paid tribute to the talented young footballer’s “beautiful soul”.

Two teenagers were last night, Tuesday March 3, charged with the murder of the Birmingham teenager from Erdington.

The 17-year-olds will appear before Leamington magistrates this morning accused over the murder of Ramani, who was found collapsed on Clay Lane in the Stoke area around 10.30pm on Saturday, February 9 after he had been stabbed.

West Midlands Police is investigating links to trouble at a house party in Chandos Street shortly before.

Tribute from Ramani’s family

Last night, Ramani’s family said: “On February 29, our child was taken away from us. This has totally broken our family. Ramani was so kind, caring, and humble and had a beautiful soul.

“He had the potential of becoming a professional footballer. Ramani had many hopes and dreams and he had his whole life ahead of him.

“Ramani was the best son, brother, grandson, nephew and cousin anyone could ever wish for.

“Ramani was loved by everyone that knew him. We would like to thank everyone for their support so far, including the police, members of public at the scene, witnesses and also our family and friends.

“We would also like to thank those that have paid tribute to our boy.

“Moving forward we would like to appeal for anyone with any information to come forward to ensure we get the justice that Ramani deserves.

“As a family we would like to ask the public to respect our privacy at this sad time.”

Police have spoken to a number of people who were at the house party, but still need to hear from anyone with information.
