Former United and Everton manager David Moyes says in his Daily Mail column that the big Belgian is finally proving him right, and is starting to show his worth after a disastrous first season with his new club.

Very few people were surprised that the massive midfielder struggled to live up to his massive price tag, with many believing he would be on his way out of Manchester this summer after just a single season.

The former Standard Liege star has forced his way into Louis van Gaal’s starting XI however, and after returning from a recent injury he has put in a couple of fantastic performances.

Moyes believes that not only can Fellaini become a regular starter for United, but also that he can become a key player for the Premier League giants.

“It’s true that players can take time to settle at a new club. I remember people telling me it took Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic a while. Players who became great players for United,” Moyes said.

“Marouane should have been given time too, because he’s now proving what I always believed: that he can be an important player for United.

“I’ve watched him in the last two games and he has been first class. He’s had an influence on the games, which is what you look to your bigger players to do. And I think he’s played an important part in helping United gain some momentum going into the Manchester derby.”
