Tom Cleverley admitted he was relieved to leave Manchester United after he was targeted by section of the supporters and said in football it’s impossible to please everyone.
Cleverley joined Aston Villa a day after deadline day after a proposed move to Everton fell through and he insisted he was happy to leave Old Trafford behind, after some of the fans made him a scapegoat for the team’s failures last season.
Ryan Giggs and Nicky Butt have said that Manchester United will continued to develop young players as they’ve always done and that the club isn’t moving away from its traditions, despite this summer’s £150m spending spree.
The sale of Danny Welbeck to Arsenal had prompted many to claim that United were abandoning long-term prospects for immediate gain and Eric Harrison, coach of the Class of 92, to claim United were losing “their soul” as a consequence.
Gary Neville has launched an attack on Manchester United’s transfer policy this summer, claiming the club lacks control and that they’ve overpaid for some of their summer signings.
Neville also criticised the club’s decision of parting way with Danny Welbeck, a choice that Neville said he was struggling to understand, while the former United right-back insisted the £150m United have splurged this summer were the result of poor strategy and overpaying players.
Former Manchester United striker Ruud Van Nistelrooy has been working closely with Robin Van Persie to help his compatriot to remain deadly in front of goal, as he once was.
Van Nistelrooy was named in Guus Hiddink’s staff for the Holland squad as the former Chelsea manager replaced Louis Van Gaal in charge of the Oranje and the former United striker has been working as a coach to the strikers.
Robin Van Persie believes Manchester United will return to success after this summer spending spree and the Dutchman has revealed he’s raring to go, as United look to finally kickstart their season against QPR on Sunday.
A defeat and two draws in their opening three league games represented a poor start for Louis Van Gaal, but Van Persie insisted United’s £150m spending spree will pay its dividends and that he’s excited about playing with some world class players, such as Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao.
Manchester United might have spent £150m this summer but Louis Van Gaal is far from done as far as bolstering his squad is concerned and one of his main targets has given United reasons to be encouraged.
Kevin Strootman has ditched his agent Chiel Dekker and has joined SEG – the Sports Entertainment Group – who were involved in Robin van Persie’s move from Arsenal to United, a move that could facilitate a January move to United, which the Dutch midfielder is said to be keen on.
New Manchester United number 9 Radamel Falcao has revealed that he feared his move to Old Trafford would unravel at the very last minute, as the loan deal to bring the Colombian to Old Trafford went right to the wire.
Having agreed a £6m loan fee with Monaco early on Monday, United were made to wait until 1.30am on Tuesday before announcing the signing of the Colombian, a full two and half hours after the transfer window had officially shut.
No, no he’s not. That was a lie. Though some might be cynical enough to believe that the headline was used as a crude ploy to draw in readers they will be categorically and absolutely correct.
Tom Cleverley is not the saviour of Manchester United, Tom Cleverley was the kid that promised much and delivered almost nothing.
