Manchester United's striking legend Teddy Sheringham says his old club should have signed Mesut Ozil instead of Marouane Fellaini.
Manchester United were rumoured to be interested in a move for Ozil along with Arsenal on transfer deadline day but never made a concrete offer.
Sheringham believes that such a move was a mistake and that Ozil should have moved to the club instead of the Belgian international.
Both players made their debut at the weekend with Ozil impressing for Arsene Wenger's side. The 24-year-old to just 11 minutes to create his first goal in Arsenal colours when he laid on a perfect cross for Oliver Giroud.
In contrast, Fellaini failed to sparkle in a lacklustre 2-0 win against a 10-man Crystal Palace.
The former Manchester United striker even went as far to say that he believes David Moyes will struggle to fit Fellaini in to the starting XI at Old Trafford whilst the need for a creative, attacking midfielder remains.
"Out of Fellaini and Ozil you would really want Ozil to be your playmaker," Sheringham told Absolute Radio’s Ian Wright.
"I think Fellaini is too similar in a way to Michael Carrick, but I love Michael Carrick as a player, he makes things tick.
"It makes you think, "where is Fellaini going to play?" If you spend 28 million on someone you’d expect them to be playing."
Sheringham, famed for his equaliser against Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final, also added that he would not want to be in Moyes' position as successor to Sir Alex Ferguson.
"I think David Moyes has got a tough job," he added. "To go in there and manage top players is hard.
"We won’t know how well he’s doing until they go a couple of games without winning and all of a sudden the pressure is on and then you’ve got to show your metal.
"At the moment things seem OK, but with a little bit of pressure we’ll see what he’s really made of."
