Tom Cleverly, once one of Manchester United’s greatest talents, has revealed that he wants to return to Manchester United.
Born in 1989, the 33-year-old midfielder was one of Manchester United’s most promising prospects. Cleverley, who spent the 2009/10 and 2010/11 seasons on loan at Watford and Wigan Athletic, played in the first team in earnest from the 2011/12 season.
After coming up to the first team, he was pushed out by other outstanding midfielders and did not have a chance to play, but he scored 5 goals and 8 assists in 79 appearances in 4 seasons. During this time he won the Premier League once, the League Cup once and the Community Shield twice.
In particular, in the 2012/13 season, which was Alex Ferguson’s last season, he played a role in the midfield rotation and presented the league championship trophy.
However, he was completely pushed out of the competition for the 2014/15 season and was loaned to Aston Villa, and left for Everton after the season. Since 2017 he has been playing as captain at Watford.
Almost eight years after leaving Manchester United, Cleverly expressed interest in returning.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Cleverley said, “I couldn’t properly say goodbye at Manchester United because I played at Villa in 2015 until the FA Cup final. I remember having to leave England. I didn’t get a chance to say hello to everyone at Manchester United. It wasn’t a fairy tale ending,” he said.
“I don’t know when it will be, but I really want to go back to Manchester United. My journey is not over yet. As Watford captain, I love helping the young players in the team. Maybe that won’t change when I become a coach after I retire.” He said he might go back. 메이저사이트
At the same time, he revealed that there are only Bradford and Manchester United in his heart.
Cleverly expressed his love for United, saying: “We could start fresh anywhere else, but I’m only thinking of my childhood teams, Bradford and Manchester United.”
