Man Utd midfielder Carrick upset for crocked Cleverley

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick understands manager Sir Alex Ferguson going with his kids so far this season.

Although Tom Cleverley's four-week absence with damaged ligaments has offered a route back to the first team, the Geordie is disappointed at his team-mate's extended absence.

"The young lads have come out flying," said Carrick.

"It is great to see them bursting through. The buzz around the squad is fantastic.

"There is enthusiasm and energy and the whole thing has gone up a notch. That has shown on the pitch, so Tom's injury is a bitter blow."
