Manchester United fans react to Tom Cleverley’s England call-up on Twitter

Tom Cleverley is seemingly more marmite than marmite itself and following Roy Hodgson’s call-up to the England squad for the friendly against Denmark next week, Manchester United fans had their say on the midfielder.

Hodgson has a soft spot for Cleverley and he featured more than most in England’s World Cup qualifying campaign but the 24-year-old’s inconsistent form has seen him become a scapegoat for United’s season.

His place in the England squad is a testament to the faith that Hodgson has in him but although there is some in support for him, plenty of United fans don’t think he should be there.

Cleverley had to quit Twitter earlier this season because of abuse he received from United fans and some took it as far as to make a petition online calling for United to sell him.

They clearly started a trend because somebody has now started a petition calling for Cleverley to be banned from England’s World Cup squad.

For me, Cleverley isn’t good enough to be a regular Manchester United start for years to come but he is a decent squad member and if we bring in top quality central midfielders, he could play a long term role for United.
