Round happy following Moyes to Man Utd

Steve Round is delighted to have followed David Moyes from Everton to Manchester United.

Round knew in 2008 that he was the right fit as Moyes' sidekick after spells with Derby, Middlesbrough, England and Newcastle.

"David really impressed me from the first moment I met him," he recalled to the Manchester Evening News.

"I had done one year at Newcastle and I got a call off David to say he'd like to meet me because he needed a new assistant and he said I was his number one target.

"From the first minute we met I knew I was going to work for him. At that time I was at a bit of a crossroads in my career because I was starting to wonder whether it was time for me to be a manager.

"I had a couple of opportunities to have an interview for the manager's job. But after five minutes in David's company I knew I had to work with him. He sold me a vision and I was hooked.

"He is a terrific person with great honesty and integrity. He really knows his football stuff and he will succeed at United."
