Man Utd's Cleverley haunted by taunts from Man City fans

Tom Cleverley wants Manchester United to regain their Premier League title for no other reason than to silence all those Manchester City supporters who have taunted him since that dramatic final day of the campaign. The 22 year old midfielder told the Daily Star: "The motivation is there, massively. It's our neighbours, our rivals. Nothing needs to be said to motivate ourselves.

"Football seems to be the only talking point in Manchester at the minute.

"When your neighbours are your main rivals for the league, you can't really get away from it.

"We've taken some stick from the fans in the street. A few 'Man City' shouts, that sort of thing. You have just got to grit your teeth and keep your head down.

"It hurts, but it would be even sweeter to take it back next season. There's been a bit of ribbing come our way, but to get our own back would be twice as nice."
