Petition set up for Man Utd's Cleverley to be banned from World Cup

Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley is the subject of an online petition wanting him banned from England's World Cup squad.

A petition which has been set up in hope of banning Cleverley from appearing in England's World Cup squad has gained 4,000 signatures in ONE single day.

Set up by petitioner Glenn McConnell, of Blackpool, the introduction claims his performance on the world stage could be embarrassing:

"Tom Cleverley, owner of 13 England caps, six more than Ross Barkley, Adam Lallana and Leon Osman combined, has been regularly selected by Roy Hodgson in his squads without possessing any genuine qualities whatsoever.

"We believe for the reputation of this proud footballing nation that he should be prevented from participating in this summer's international showcase.

"Whilst England are considered to disappoint at major tournaments, further embarrassment could be avoided by not having his inept performances undermine the rest of the team's efforts."
