David Moyes has called for patience from Manchester United fans as Marouane Fellaini settles into life at Old Trafford.

The Belgium international has come in for criticism for his performances from some fans since the midfielder’s deadline-day transfer to the Red Devils from Everton.

There are players for whom it takes quite a bit to settle in and there have been a few here

But Moyes believes that the 26-year-old, who has only started three league games for the Red Devils this term, simply needs to be given a bit of time to adapt to life at the defending champions.

“I think Marouane’s probably going through the same settling-in process as most players who join Manchester United go through,” Moyes said.

“I don’t think it’s just Marouane or David Moyes; I think it’s players who join this club.

“There are some players who hit the ground running and can go straight in. But then there are others for whom it takes quite a bit to settle in and there have been a few here.”
