Chester has been known to follow the pair's fortunes in amongst United supporters.
He told the Hull Daily Mail: "I've know Danny for a long time and Tom Cleverley.
"He's my age. I think we joined United at about the same time, so I've known him for a long time as well.
"I don't speak to them that often any more because it's difficult to keep in touch with everyone you know in football but when we do speak, we have a chat and a nice catch-up.
"I'm very proud of what they've managed to achieve because it's not easy as a young lad at United coming through and making your way into the first team."
