Manchester United assistant manager Steve Round, has backed new signing Marouane Fellaini to help Old Trafford boss David Moyes bring success to the club. 

Round worked with Moyes at Goodison Park and knows both men well and the United assistant feels Fellaini will have no trouble settling in at his new club. 

"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 said. 

The Red Devils were once again tipped to sign a host of players this summer after the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson, but the Old Trafford hierarchy could not secure deals for any of their target's, apart from the big Belgian.

Round knows that Fellaini is exactly the type of player Moyes was hoping to sign and that the former Everton man will be a great compliment to the United midfield.

"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," Round added.

Fellaini has been a menace to United in the past, scoring the winner against them in last season's opening Premier League match and putting in several man-of-the-match performances in meetings between the two sides.

Round knows the talent the new United midfielder possesses and feels his attributes will contribute a valuable service to Moyes' team. 

"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. His feet and his technique work are really good. He is aggressive and tackles. He also has great fitness stats," he concluded.

The Red Devils managed to keep unsettled striker Wayne Rooney as well as securing Nani's long-term future at the club. However, there is still a lot of work for Moyes to do after a mediocre start to the season is in need of rectification.
