Aston Villa midfielder Tom Cleverley: Man Utd abuse was tough

Tom Cleverley feels he's rebuilt his career with Aston Villa.

The midfielder is on-loan at Villa from Manchester United, where he comes off contract in June.

"Everyone is a confidence player,'' said Cleverley to the Telegraph.

"At times last year, it was my first taste of getting really criticised and that got magnified when you play at a massive club like United. Sometimes I struggled with that. Sometimes things don't come naturally. I see it with other players. Gareth Bale's a fantastic player but you can tell he's thinking about things a little bit."
