Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has said manager David Moyes will be a success at United but must be given time, reports Sky Sports.
Fellaini followed Moyes to United from Everton last summer and the Belgian international has backed his boss to succeed.
Fellaini told reporters: "What makes United different is that they stand by managers, you look at the career of Sir Alex Ferguson and he managed the club 26 years.
"You have to give David Moyes time as well. He is a strong character. That's why he can take the pressure. Given time he will be good for Manchester United.
"Man United had the same manager for 26 years - to change that is not easy for anyone. The supporters and everybody else has to give him time."
Fellaini will be desperate to end this season on a high after a tricky campaign at the Theatre of Dreams so far.
However, the ex Everton man knows that Moyes has placed a lot of faith in him and he is keep to repay that faith and help the Red Devils to improve.
"He has done so much for me that of course I want to repay him at Manchester United."
The Belgian giant may be an intimidating figure on the pitch but he has expressed his respect for the Scottish manager and sees him almost like a father figure.
"I can only say a huge thank you because I learned so much from him.
"He is the most important person in my career. I could never say something bad about him because he has done everything for me.
"When I played bad he told me. When I played well he told me. When I have a bad demeanour on the pitch he tells me.
"Last season when I was suspended for Stoke City [after a headbutt] he was very hard on me. He made me go back out and train alone with him. I was like his son and I had been bad so I took my punishment."
Fellaini will be looking to inspire United to a victory at Old Trafford on Sunday against an impressive Liverpool side.
United are looking for a good run of form in the hope to enter the top four of the league and Liverpool are hoping to achieve their first league title in 24 years.
