Former Everton striker Louis Saha insists ex-teammate Marouane Fellaini will prove himself at Manchester United.

Saha wrote in the Daily Mail: "I have heard lots of people say that he is not the type of player that United need and he is not a United player. But I do not agree with that.

"He is like Darren Fletcher and Roy Keane in that he works hard to win the ball back for his side. Keane was aggressive in his time and I believe Fellaini can do the same sort of job, plus he can score goals.

"He will need good advice from the manager and the staff to make sure he is in the right position on the field and it will take time for him to adapt, but I am sure that when he settles in and finds his position he will be able to do some damage."
