Moyes: Fellaini will succeed
David Moyes is certain deadline day capture Marouane Fellaini will be a big success at Manchester United.
Moyes had a fairly quiet summer transfer window but Monday's shambles over the non-deal for Ander Herrera was somewhat forgotten when he raided former club Everton for the big Belgian midfielder.
Fellaini cost United £27.5m, more than he would have done a couple of weeks ago when a release clause in his contract was allowed to expire, but Moyes is not worried about the pressure the sizeable fee brings with it.
"Marouane is not someone you want to be playing against," Moyes said.
"He has attributes other people don't have. And with those qualities he has, I am sure he will be a big player for Manchester United."
The United boss is also pleased with the flexibility Fellaini brings, and is not committed to playing him in midfield all the time.
He added: "He can play higher up the field if we need him to, just behind a main striker.
"He can play as a defensive or holding midfield player. In fact he is comfortable in any position in the middle of the field.
"It was definitely a position where people would say we were short, not just of numbers, with the likes of Paul Scholes retiring and Darren Fletcher not being ready to come back just now. I am glad we have got him."
