Ferguson gets the best out of Cleverley

Published Add your comment

Wayne Rooney revealed Tom Cleverley received a half-time rocket from Sir Alex Ferguson before his first Manchester United goal steered them towards a 2-1 Capital One Cup victory over Newcastle at Old Trafford.

Cleverley had been sent through by Javier Hernandez when the contest was still goalless. But amazingly, with only goalkeeper Rob Elliot to beat, Cleverley fired wide. Although Anderson fired home an excellent 25-yard effort to put United ahead at the break, Rooney confirmed Ferguson was not happy.

"The manager wasn't too pleased with Tom because of that miss in the first half," said Rooney. "But it was a nice goal by him and a great strike by Anderson. I am delighted for the two of them, especially Tom because it was his first one."
