Cleverley Glad To Get The Goal

Last updated : 28 September 2012 By Utd Mad Ed

The 23 year old has been out on loan spells to Leicester, Watford and Wigan and managed to find the net without too much of a problem, but in a United shirt it began to look like the breakthrough would never come for the player.

And after missing a golden chance in the first half of Wednesday's game against Newcastle in the Capital One Cup, he received a bit of a rollocking from Sir Alex.

That did the trick as he came up with a goal that doubled United's lead over the Magpies and proved in the end to be the match winner.

Cleverley told the club's official website:  "It has been playing on my mind a little bit.

"I have always scored goals when I have gone on loan, so it was bugging me that I had not been doing it for my club or my country. The gaffer gave me a bit at half-time for missing the one in the first-half, so it was nice to stroke that one in.

 "We practice those sorts of finishes a lot so when the ball came to me I knew what I was going to do. I have got the first one out of the way now. Hopefully they will all come at once."
