Cleverley backs Rooney as captain

Published Add your comment

Tom Cleverley has backed Wayne Rooney's England captaincy claims.

Manager Roy Hodgson views the Manchester United man as a leader in waiting. And Cleverley endorses that view, feeling his Red Devils team-mate has all the right attributes, even the ability to deliver Roy Keane-style rebukes.

"When you want to win badly you'll do anything to achieve it," said Cleverley. "If people need telling, even in training, Wazza's not afraid to do it, or if I'm on his team and we're not winning he'll let me know."
