Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt is convinced that Manchester United manager David Moyes heard his calls to strengthen the club's midfield

Bolt published a video on Instagram bemoaning the state of the Red Devils' midfield after watching Liverpool outclass them at Anfield at the start of the month.

But Moyes forked out £27.5m on Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini on transfer deadline day, leaving United's central midfield looking significantly stronger than before.

"I was sitting at home and watching the game (against Liverpool) and I saw that in the midfield is where we are most weakest so I was just voicing my concern," Bolt to ITV Sport.

"I think David Moyes heard, I'm sure, because it was all over the news. I think he surely got that message. He got (Marouane) Fellaini (in) and (Shinji) Kagawa is now playing so the team is much better and a lot more stable."

Since signing Fellaini, United have recorded back-to-back wins over Crystal Palace and Bayer Leverkusen in the Premier League and Champions League, respectively.

This weekend, though, he will find himself up against the likes of Yaya Toure and Fernandinho as United travel to the Etihad Stadium for the eagerly-anticipated Manchester derby against Manchester City.
