The 23-year-old England international seems to divide opinion like no other, still receiving criticism for his performances, despite the fact that he is now a regular fixture for club and country, and has the backing of both Sir Alex Ferguson and Roy Hodgson to develop into a world-class star of the future.

Whether it's leadership on or off the pitch, an eye for a pass, or the ability to score goals, Cleverley wants to combine all those attributes and emulate the cumulative success of his role models, in a bid to become on the best all-round midfielders the Premier League has ever seen.
