Cleverley: Man Utd pal Anderson convinced me about Olympics

Tom Cleverley admits Manchester United teammate Anderson convinced him about playing for Team GB in the Olympics.

Anderson played for Brazil in the 2008 Games.

Cleverley told Sky Sports: Anderson came back one summer from the 2008 Olympics and said it was an unbelievable tournament and an unbelievable experience. It is something you want to be a part of. Listening to Anderson, he was excited.

"He is also excited that some of us are going. Anderson is the only person I have heard from first-hand about the Olympics. But, obviously, you see all the top players play at the Olympics."
