Man Utd No2 Round: Fellaini will get double figures every season

Manchester United No2 Steve Round expects Marouane Fellaini to hit double figures this season.

Having worked extensively with Fellaini at close quarters, Round is certain the 25-year-old's skills and abilities will complement those of his new team-mates.

"He will add some real physical presence to us in midfield, some strength, and he scores goals," Round told MUTV.

"He's a player that will get regular double figures, and he is maybe a player that we didn't really have in the middle of that midfield.

"We have some very good footballers - Michael Carrick is an unbelievably good passer, Tom Cleverley is busy, lively and links play, Anderson will drive forward with the ball, dribble and create.

"Maybe we needed that bit of presence and authority that can sit in the middle of the pitch and dominate a game from that perspective. It gives a nice blend and balance to mix the midfield up."
