The 25-year-old joined Villa on loan on transfer deadline day and has admitted that he needed to get away from Old Trafford.
Cleverley told reporters: "You don't turn into a bad player just because someone says it on Twitter. I probably wasn't the only United player to get it last year.
"For as long as Man United aren't winning trophies, players will get criticised. I'm fully aware of that. I've still got a league title, 13 England caps."
Cleverley will spend the duration of the season at Villa Park following the loan switch from United.
