Two former legends of Manchester United have come out and backed Tom Cleverley to make it big at Manchester United as the Englishman made his comeback from a injury against Ajax in the Europa League...
Former Manchester United captain Bryan Robson and Nicky Butt, who was a part of the golden generation which included other starts such as David Beckham, Gary Neville and Paul Scholes have come out and put their weight behind Cleverley
to light up the stage at old Trafford. Both the players who plied their trade in the midfield department for Manchester United said that Cleverley is a talented footballer who needs to work hard to make it big at Old Trafford.
There has been a lot of hype surrounding Cleverley’s talent and his ability at Old Trafford and the Englishman has been able to live up to some of the expectations as he started the season with a bright run of form for the Red
However since then he has had to deal with various injury issues. Nonetheless, the young playmaker made his comeback from injury against Ajax in United’s 2-0 win over the Dutch champions at the Amsterdam arena as a part of their
Europa League commitments. Cleverley started the match but was substituted in the second half due to reasons related to match fitness.
Nicky Butt said in his interview, "I've known [Tom] Cleverley since he was a kid. When I first started my coaching badges at United with [Paul] Scholes, [Gary] Neville, [Ryan] Giggs and [Roy] Keane, they were the team we were taking
as 15-year-olds then. He was always a bright talent and, since he's been on loan, he's come back and been phenomenal really.”
He added, "He needs to keep working hard at it. I'm sure he will as he comes across as a good lad and he needs to listen to the manager, coaches and experienced pros. He can go anywhere really; he's got that much ability. Cleverley
is a much better technical footballer than I ever was. It just goes to show how it's moving on with these players."
