Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley is hoping he has gotten past the worst in regards to injuries.

The 22-year old missed a large chunk of last season with an ankle injury but is now determined to get on with his career which was boosted when he signed a four-year deal with the Red Devils last October.

"It has been a nightmare at times but I am only 22 and have around 15 years ahead of me yet. I just hope I have got it all over and done with now," he told the Manchester Evening News.

"There were times during the season when I thought I was the unluckiest footballer in the world.

"From a great start it became the hardest season of my life but it has made me mentally stronger.

"I've always had to cope with disappointments in my career. I had two injuries over the years (undergoing shoulder surgery and having a knee problem in loan spells at Leicester and Watford respectively) but I got through them."
