Manchester United boss David Moyes has backed Tom Cleverley after an online petition was launched calling for the Manchester United midfielder to be excluded from England's World Cup squad, reports The Guardian.

Over 17,000 people have signed the petition, which was set up by Glenn McConnell from Blackpool, who criticised the player's "inept" performances for United and England.

"Tom Cleverley is a fantastic young player who's developing all the time," the Manchester United manager said. "He is a great trainer. He is first out and every day he does his best in training. He always gives his best and that is why he will succeed."
