Manchester United and England forward player Danny Welbeck has said that his team mate, both at national and club level,Tom Cleverley will be a force to reckon with in the near future. In an exclusive interview with United Review, Welbeck mentioned the special abilities of his friend Tom Cleverley and his influence in the EPL.
Few excerpts from the interview can be read below.
“I think he can become a world-class player”
“Football is such a simple game, it’s how hard you make it for yourself. Tom keeps it so simple and it is hard to do that when you’re in centre-midfield, but Tom does that.
It was Cleverley’s pass that allowed Welbeck to score his first goal of the season for Manchester United against Spurs.
“He gets the ball, passes it, moves into space and he’s just always there as an extra option every time you’ve got the ball.
“He’s really good to play with, I enjoy playing with him so much and he’s got the awareness, the vision and the ability to pick out a pass and actually produce a final pass as well.
Both the players have played together quite a lot since their academy days.
“He’s just going to carry on improving. You can see that every single day in training. He’s a really good player.”
“We are really good friends off the field and quite a few people come up to us and tell us that it shows on the field.
“We’ve been through the same training in the academy, the same coaches have taught us the same things, so we’re on the same wavelength and we know each other’s games inside out.”
