The Secret Footballer defends Manchester United’s Tom Cleverley, lamenting petition as ‘hateful’
The petition aiming to deny Tom Cleverley entry to Brazil this summer (effectively) now has 17,000 signatures; people really really, really don’t like him.
And after David Moyes came out in his defence yesterday, the proasic quill of the Secret Footballer has seconded that, lamenting the petition as a hateful symptom of modern culture.
TSF sees the petition as a convenient and easy scapegoat, which obfuscates from the real issue: the Man United Board’s failure to bring in adequate midfield reinforcements last summer.
It’s a compelling argument, well outlined and discussed as always by the not-so mysterious mystery man.
