Man United’s Fellaini: I jumped at the chance to work with Moyes again
Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini reveals he jumped at the chance to work with David Moyes again
Marouane Fellaini has revealed he jumped at the chance to work with David Moyes again after completing a £27.5m move to Manchester United on Monday.
The Belgium secured a much-anticipated switch to the reigning Premier League champions from Everton late on deadline day, linking up with his former Toffees boss Moyes.
The Scot brought the 25-year-old to the English top-flight in an Everton club-record £17m deal from Standard Liege in 2008 and Fellaini went on to score 25 goals in 141 Premier League appearances.
“I am thrilled to sign for Manchester United. I have known the manager for many years now and I have a lot of respect for his way of working,” Fellaini told United’s website.
“When I was given the opportunity to work with him again, I jumped at the chance.
“I had a fantastic time at Everton and I’d like to thank all the fans and staff there for everything they have done for me.
“But being a Manchester United player is something that every player dreams of and I believe that I can make a real contribution to the team’s efforts to win trophies in the future.”
