Following United's link with Wesley Sneijder, a section of fans produced a banner saying 'Who needs Wesley? We've got Cleverley' and he admits that sort of admiration is always good.
"Wesley Sneijder is fantastic, but if fans think that, then I must be doing something right," he told manutd.com.
"I'm not from Manchester but I've grown up here and know what this club means to the fans. If they get behind me like that then I'm buzzing."
