Marouane Fellaini: Confident he can land silverware with Manchester United

With the clock ticking down to the 11pm deadline, Fellaini handed in a transfer request at Everton in an effort to force through a deal.

He got his wish as United wrapped up an agreement with just minutes to spare.

Fellaini is now looking forward to taking on a new challenge at Old Trafford and believes he is linking up with a squad that is capable of defending its Premier League title.

The Belgium international told Sky Sports after playing 68 minutes for his country in a 2-0 victory over Scotland on Friday: "It was a great week for me. It was nervous on Monday, but I have my transfer and I won with Belgium, so I'm happy.

"When I started the campaign with Everton, I looked forward for a transfer and in the end I am happy.

"I look forward to playing with the players. I need to work hard for my place. I want to win something with Manchester. I want to play a lot of games and win a trophy.

"It will be tough, every year it is tough for the big teams. But I think Manchester United have quality to win the trophy. I look forward to this.

"It's a big step for me. But I have played for five years in England, I know the league and I know the players, so I don't think I will have a problem with this move."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
