John Cofie aiming to follow example of Man Utd teammate Tom Cleverley

Manchester United striker John Cofie hopes to follow the example of Tom Cleverley in terms of his development.

Cofie is currently on-loan at Royal Antwerp.

He told The National: "Tom was on loan for three years at three different clubs, but he improved significantly each year. That can be me. I've only been in Belgium for a month and I've learnt so much. I'm learning about the mental toughness required, how to lose as well as win. I'm learning little tricks, how to win the ball in the air by jumping first and maybe using a bit of an elbow. You have to do that against men or you don't win the ball."
