Liverpool's Gerrard: Man Utd youngster Cleverley is going to be some player

Liverpool's England skipper Steven Gerrard is full of praise for Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley.

Gerrard was impressed by ­Cleverley’s performance and is ­confident the 23-year-old will get even better for both club and country.

“Cleverley’s going to be a good player,” said Gerrard. “He’s only a young boy and games like this will be fantastic experience for him. He’s playing for one of the biggest clubs in Europe and he’s ­broken into the England team, so he’s got a great future.

“If he keeps learning the game and ­trying to improve, he’s going to be a fantastic footballer.

“He’s doing a good job. He’s played twice in that position now, against Italy and Moldova, and done himself no harm. He can also play as a ­midfielder. It’s important when you’re young to be able to play in a couple of different positions. It helps you get into starting XIs and he can do that.”
