Cleverly Sidelined For 4 Weeks




Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverly is expected to miss four weeks of football after he suffered ligament damage during the game against Bolton.  A rash tackle from Bolton skipper Kevin Davis led to Cleverly’s injury.  Manchester United eventually won the game 5-0 but Cleverly’s injury overshadowed the result.  The England under 21 midfielder is set to be sidelined for 4 weeks but it was feared that the injury could have been even worse.

After Scholes retirement Cleverly stepped into the central midfield role at Manchester United and was performing well. His injury before the Champions league clash against Benfica has left United manager Sir Alex Ferguson fuming. He said – “It’s a bad one (Cleverly’s injury) and it’s a bad tackle”. First it was feared that he might be having a broken leg and Cleverly was seen sitting at the bench with a protective foot gear. But now the scans have confirmed that there is no such break in Cleverley’s foot. Not only Ferguson England manager Fabio Capello is also disappointed with the injury of Cleverly. He was in line to face Spain in the international friendly in November along with club team mate Phil Jones.

Cleverly is also expected to miss the Euro qualifiers for England. Speaking about the injury Cleverly said on his Facebook page – “Not feeling good. Feeling like I have broken my foot. Won’t know more until a scan, when I know more will update. So angry right now, want everyone to know I got no apology from Kevin Davies season could be over and received no apology.”

Not only Cleverly, Jonny Evans and Patrice Evra are also doubtful for the Champions league game against Benfica. Jonny Evans is suffering from a hip injury and Evra is suffering an injury in his kneecap.
