Cleverley: Man Utd teammate Valencia convinced me about Wigan

Manchester United winger Antonio Valencia had a big influence on teammate Tom Cleverley agreeing a loan move to Wigan Athletic.

Valencia left the DW last summer for United.

Cleverley told the Wigan Evening Post: "I spoke to Antonio before I made my decision, and he said it was a very good club which made my mind up.

"He said he enjoyed his time here a lot, and I would like it here as well.

"Antonio doesn't speak much English but the general point was it was the right club for me.

"I know there is a good relationship between the two clubs and hopefully I can continue that."
