"Cleverley best Utd kid since Scholes"

Tom Cleverley is unquestionably the best youngster Manchester United have had since Paul Scholes, according to former United youth coach Eric Harrison.

Clev best Utd youngster since Scholes - Harrison

• Cleverley out until Christmas

Following the retirement of Scholes last summer, Cleverley has seized the chance to replace the former England international at the heart of United's midfield. He shone as a substitute in the Community Shield win over Manchester City, then carried that form into the early weeks of the season.

Although his emergence has been checked by a series of injures - the latest of which will keep him out until Christmas - he is still being tipped to earn a place in the England squad for Euro 2012.

And Harrison, who helped usher the likes of Ryan Giggs and David Beckham into the United first team, believes the sky is the limit for the 22-year-old. "Cleverley is the best home-grown young player Manchester United have had since Paul Scholes. No question," he said.

Meanwhile, Harrison has tipped the youngsters breaking through at Old Trafford - as well as Cleverley, United can boast the likes of Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Danny Welbeck - to emulate the achievements of the Giggs generation.

"It's been a long time coming but they're getting very close to the group I had - Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, David Beckham - that glorious group which we call the Class of '92," Harrison said.
