Poor old Tom Cleverley. The Manchester United midfielder admitted to feeling like a scapegoat recently and now the Englishman has been bullied off Twitter.

The 24-year-old has closed his account @tomclevz23 after being abused by trolls, largely due to an interview the England international gave in British newspaper the Daily Mirror on Tuesday.

“I would like the fans on my side and it hurts a little bit when you have grown up at the club and love the club every bit as much as the supporters,” Cleverley told the Mirror’s Oliver Holt.

“I feel I’ve been made a scapegoat a little bit. A few people in the media certainly seem to have a perception of me not doing much in the team.”

The Twitterati reacted as one might imagine to these comments from the United man and the midfielder was hammered online.

It’s not the first time that Cleverley has suffered at the hand of the trolls, as an #AskCarrick Q&A session initiated by the official Red Devils handle quickly became a platform for abuse.

However, Cleverley clearly still has some fans out there as many have jumped to the defence of the Red Devils youth product.
