Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley feels the Olympics will be ideal preparation for the new season.

Cleverley has been chosen by Stuart Pearce to represent Great Britain at London 2012 this month.

"I'm buzzing about it. I cannot wait. It is a great way for me to bounce back after the disappointment of not going to the Euros with England," he told the Manchester Evening News.

"It's a young squad, apart from the older age players, and after England's Euro 2012 experience a lot of people are talking about putting the accent on youth.

"This is a chance for me to remind people early. They've put trust in us and I want to repay that faith."
