Round: Moyes Was Ready For United

Manchester United manager David Moyes' right-hand man Steve Round has backed the boss to succeed at Old Trafford.

The Scot came in to take over from the retired Sir Alex Ferguson this summer and has had a tough start to the season - drawing at home to Chelsea and losing away to Liverpool after an opening win at Swansea.

The defending champions have four points after three games, but Round is confident that Moyes' desire to succeed will allow him to achieve big things.

"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 told the Manchester Evening News.

"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."
