Cleverley does not want tag

Published Add your comment

Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley is anxious to avoid the tag of being injury prone.

The 22-year-old injured a foot at Bolton in September and was then just two games into his comeback when he hurt an ankle at Everton that ruled him out for a further three-and-a-half months. He then picked up another foot injury on Europa League duty against Ajax that condemned him to another fortnight on the sidelines.

"It has been a bit stop-start," he told MUTV. "I don't want to get the tag of being injury prone, I have just been a bit unlucky. The knock I got against Ajax was just something else compared to what I have been out for the rest of the season with. Now I am fully ready."
