Aston Villa midfielder Cleverley grateful for Meulensteen influence

Aston Villa midfielder Tom Cleverley has paid tribute to former Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen.

The midfielder is on-loan at Villa from United, where he comes off contract in June.

"Rene was one of the best coaches I probably will ever work with,'' said Cleverley to the Telegraph.

"He definitely brought all those technical things from Spanish football into ours. You learn to play the right way at United.''
