Cleverley on Olympic Selection

Cleverley on Olympic Selection

Sir Alex Ferguson has, rather craftily, restricted the number of United players that are representing their countries in the London 2012 Olympic football tournament.

One of those 'allowed` to participate is Tom Cleverley.

The youngster started last season well but saw his blossoming career hit by an injury that kept him on the side-lines for a large proportion of it.

Having gotten back to full fitness towards the end of the campaign, Tom didn`t make the England squad of twenty-three for the finals of Euro 2012.

Therefore a place in the eighteen man squad selected by Stuart Pearce for the 2012 Olympics has been welcomed by the midfielder who is quoted as having remarked in the local media,

'It is a great way for me to bounce back after the disappointment of not going to the Euros with England."

'After my injury spell out last season, Paul Scholes and Michael Carrick were doing so well I didn't get much game time,'

'So I need minutes on the pitch, and I feel that playing in high-stake competitive matches like I'll get at the Olympics is right for me.'


Although some might say that being away from the pre-season action may give others the chance to cement a place in the United starting eleven.

Can't see his position in the squad changing this season and he will remain on the periphery unfortunately. We need to start utilising our youth or we risk losing them. Best of luck to him at the Olympics and hopefully he comes back and makes the midfield position his own.

Hopefully more in Fergie's plans this season as Scholes and Giggs should be used more sparingly. Anderson should be sold he's never replicated his first seasons form or looked like he might. Getting away might be the best thing for him

Can't say I disagree regarding Anderson. Every time he looks like he's building up a bit of form and showcasing the potential he first showed when he signed for us his ended up getting injured and coming back looking fat and unfit again and struggling to get into the first team. Unfortunately I can't see that changing anytime soon and he should just be sold on and we recoup whatever we can for him. Slightly concerned about fletcher also as I doubt he's ever going to be able to come back into football and play for us with his condition, I suspect he'll go the same way as Hargreaves unfortunately and we'll lose one of our best CM's.
