My Man United career is over, admits Aston Villa loanee Tom Cleverley
Aston Villa midfielder Tom Cleverley believes his Manchester United career is over after joining Birmingham side on loan
Tom Cleverley has conceded that his Manchester United career is over after joining Aston Villa on loan.
The 25-year-old England international ended his United nightmare after agreeing to move to the Birmingham side on a temporary deal last week.
With me being out of contract at the end of the year if I am being honest I don’t think I would play for the club again
Cleverley was a scapegoat for the Red Devils’s struggles under Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor David Moyes and was at times booed by his own supporters last season.
And the Villa signing, who has one year left on his current United deal, doesn’t envisage pulling on a Red Devils shirt again after temporarily ending his seven-year career at the Red Devils.
“If any footballer gets a bit of stick off their own fans they are going to be hurt. Football is a game of opinions and you can’t please everyone,” Cleverley said.
“I am happy to get away from some of the negativity. Whenever you are not winning trophies at Man United the players are going to get some stick.
“With me being out of contract at the end of the year if I am being honest I don’t think I would play for the club again.
“In modern football it is rare that one player, like Giggsy or Scholesy, plays for one club for their career.”
Cleverley scored one goal in 22 Premier League appearances last season.
