Welbeck hails class act Cleverley | Manchester United

Danny Welbeck feels his Manchester United team-mate Tom Cleverley has what it takes to develop into a world-class player.

Despite some injury setbacks, midfielder Cleverley has made a big impression for United this term after returning from last season's loan spell at Wigan and has been called up to Fabio Capello's senior England squad.

The 22-year-old is not involved with the national squad preparing for Saturday's friendly with Spain due to an ankle problem but Welbeck is, having also broken through at that level in recent months.

"I think he can become a world-class player," Welbeck, 20, told United Review. "Football is such a simple game, it's how hard you make it for yourself. Tom keeps it so simple and it is hard to do that when you're in centre-midfield, but Tom does that.

"He gets the ball, passes it, moves into space and he's just always there as an extra option every time you've got the ball.

"He's really good to play with, I enjoy playing with him so much and he's got the awareness, the vision and the ability to pick out a pass and actually produce a final pass as well."
