David Moyes has reflected on signing Marouane Fellaini for Manchester United.
Technically he’s very good. He has fantastic chest control, for instance. And he’s very professional; hard working with a great attitude. He will do anything you ask and all you’ll ever hear from him is a ‘thank you, coach’ at the end of a training session. He’s a very quiet lad. If anything a little shy.
It was all these qualities that convinced me to bring him to Manchester United, and he was very excited to come. It was a big move for him.
I remember his father, a former professional player and a huge influence on Marouane, being in tears at Carrington on the day we signed him. He was so proud his son was joining this great football club.
