Steve Round is convinced that David Moyes is the right man to continue to bring success to Manchester United.

The Scot was appointed as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor this summer following the 71-year-old’s decision to step down after 26 decorated years at Old Trafford.

United have won just one of their opening three Premier League fixtures, having dropped points against Chelsea and Liverpool in their last two games.

But the Red Devils assistant manager is certain that the 50-year-old former Everton boss is the man to help United continue improving.

“Without a doubt David was ready for this job,” Round told the Manchester Evening News. “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.”
