Manchester United assistant manager Steve Round has backed David Moyes and his new summer signing Marouane Fellani to bring success to the Old Trafford club.

United manager Moyes made a late swoop for the Belgian midfielder on deadline day. Fellaini made the switch from Everton to rivals United for a fee of £27.5million.

Round expressed his admiration for Fellaini and feels he has the quality to shine at the squad.

"I am sure Marouane will settle in very quickly and be an integral part of United's success in the future, I really do," he told the Manchester Evening News.

"When David came here he looked at the squad and thought one of the players we needed to bring in was someone with those physical attributes in the middle of midfield who could give us strength and aggression in certain games and maybe allow one or two of the others to play.

"That, coupled with his ability to score, made him feel Marouane would be a really good acquisition for United.

The former Everton assistant manager also gave recognition to the Belgian's best footballing attributes.

"When you get to work with him every day, you get to realise that technically he is excellent. His chest control is arguably one of the best in the world. You can bang the ball at him from anywhere and he will bring it down on his chest and bring others into play'.

Moyes has come into a lot of criticism following a bleak transfer window. There was always the risk of a Ferguson hangover at Old Trafford after the veteran manager decided to retire from managing the club after 27 successful years.

United assistant manager Steve Round insists Moyes can cope with the pressure and has the hunger to keep the club driving forward.

"Without a doubt David was ready for this job," he said. "I had five years at Everton with him and he impressed me every day. There is not a day goes by where you take your foot off the gas with him. He is 100 per cent every day with an incredible work ethic."

Round, who also worked under Moyes at Goodison Park, also praised the United manager's worth ethic.

"He also has an incredible desire to succeed. He now has the stature and presence to move to a club like this. I really do believe he will be a big success here.

"Now I have been in this club and environment I can understand why Sir Alex and the board appointed him, to keep that continuity, work ethic, drive and feeling about the club going.

"It was very important to them and I can understand now that I have been here and lived it. They were made for each other."
