Following more disappointment for England at Euro 2012, Tom Cleverley is eager for his generation to fulfil their potential and win something.
“We have always had potentially good players when they are growing up,” said Cleverley. “Then, we seem to get knocked out at the quarter-final stage of competitions. But I am sure I am not alone, with the likes of Phil Jones, Danny Welbeck and Jack Wilshere. There are about 20 players you could name. We want to turn potential into finals and trophies. That is our job and that is what we have got to live up to.”
Cleverley struggled with injuries last season after a great start in August, but now he is feeling fit and ready to go.
“I am feeling fit. I have been doing a bit of training in the off-season and I am 100 per cent working harder.”
