Tom Cleverley inspired by PFA Player of the Year Nominee Michael Carrick

Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley has spent most of his young career at Old Trafford and has always looked up to United legends such as Ryan Giggs, Roy Keane and Paul Scholes.

But, after having a fantastic season for Manchester United, Michael Carrick seems to be the player that Cleverley is inspired by at the club.

Yesterday, Michael Carrick was rightly nominated for the PFA Player of the Year award in which Sir Alex Ferguson was more than happy with.

Cleverley and Carrick have lined up next to each other 15-times so far this season but Cleverley admits that even when he is not playing he pays close attention to how Carrick plays.

Speaking with MUTV, Tom Cleverley said:

“Michael has been fantastic for United this season

“Growing up here, I’ve been really lucky all the way through as I’ve always had fantastic midfielders to learn from. He’s one of those.

“With his forward passing and calmness on the ball, he just knows how to control and win games, so I can always be learning from him.”

Enjoy that? Give it a share!
