The Red Devils midfielder Tom Cleverley stated he has been made a gull for the tough times the club is undergoing, and has assured he would prove the critics wrong in the left over Premier League Season.
The midfielder receives huge praise’s form the United supporters over the social media in the recent months, as the rising star of the club now being pointed as the reason for their stammering form.
The 24 year old when interviewed by the Daily Mirror stated that he can improve on his current form and revealed that it has been a tough time to overcome the bad and negative comments he received.
“I feel I’ve been made a scapegoat a little bit,” Cleverley said. “A few people in the media certainly seem to have a perception of me not doing much in the team. Don’t get me wrong, I know I can do better but people are making a big thing about how I don’t score enough goals when that is not necessarily my first job in the team.
“When I first started getting singled out, it stung, but it’s something you have got to learn to take when the team is not doing well. My job goes under the radar at times. I am not a player who’s going to beat three or four people and stick it in the top corner or go round tackling people like Roy Keane.
“I would like the fans on my side and it hurts a little bit when you have grown up at the club and love the club every bit as much as the supporters, but there are other people in the current United squad who have been through this kind of thing and they have made sure their quality shone through.
“I have got to look at those people. I have learned to take it with a pinch of salt and I’m sure it will make me stronger for the rest of my career.”
