Moyes receives Round support
Steve Round, David Moyes' right-hand man, is adamant that the Scot has what it takes to be a success at Manchester United.
Moyes has accepted the unenviable task of following in the footsteps of the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.
He is keen to do things his own way, guiding the club forward rather than being weighed down by the past, but is already being forced to fend off uncomfortable questions.
United have won only one of their opening three fixtures in the defence of their Premier League title, collecting just four points and drawing a blank in their last two outings.
Round is, however, convinced that things will improve - with United having taken in some testing fixtures early on - and has no doubts that Moyes is the right man for the Red Devils.
He told the Manchester Evening News: "Without a doubt David was ready for this job. I had five years at Everton with him and he impressed me every day.
"There is not a day goes by where you take your foot off the gas with him. He is 100 per cent every day with an incredible work ethic.
"He also has an incredible desire to succeed. He now has the stature and presence to move to a club like this. I really do believe he will be a big success here.
"Now I have been in this club and environment I can understand why Sir Alex and the board appointed him, to keep that continuity, work ethic, drive and feeling about the club going.
"It was very important to them and I can understand now that I have been here and lived it. They were made for each other."
