Manchester United fans have reacted with anger and amusement to the news that Tom Cleverley will be captain for the friendly with Roma in Denver on Saturday evening.
Cleverley was arguably the player most castigated during David Moyes’ failed reign as Manchester United manager during 2013/2014.
And, it was hoped that Louis van Gaal would send Cleverley packing from Old Trafford, with Everton linked earlier this summer.
But, it appears that Cleverley is well liked by van Gaal, who has no doubt seen something in the England midfielder that many of us missed.
Meanwhile, Wayne Rooney is in the Manchester United starting XI and the likely new England captain appears to have been snubbed at the earliest opportunity.
This surely all but confirms Cleverley has a long-term future at Old Trafford and Robin van Persie will be LVG’s captain next season. Right?
Best of the Twitter reaction to Tom Cleverley being captain for Manchester United v Roma is below.
If Cleverley is captain ahead of Rooney for pre-season games, can we assume 'Wazza' has no chance of getting the armband next season? #MUFC

Tom Cleverley is actually a typical Van Gaal player. A worker bee that won't question him, do what he's told and do so tidily.

Captain Clevz – love it. This season probably the last chance for him but I fancy him to take it. Well worth a squad berth.

Van Gaal has named Tom Cleverley captain for today's game against Roma in another show of utter contempt of United's pre-season commitments.
