West Ham manager, David Moyes, has said that replacing Arsene Wenger as Arsenal boss will be tough.
Moyes knows better than most about succeeding a long-serving and successful manager, as he took over from the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.
The Scot lasted just 10 months before he was sacked. Now in charge of the Hammers, Moyes will take his team across London to face Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday.
“It’s never easy when you follow great managers at great clubs.
“It’ll be tough for whoever takes the job.
“It’s been an incredible achievement for him to be the job that long — as it was for Sir Alex Ferguson. I thought I did well with 11 years at Everton.
“Real football people appreciate what he (Wenger) has done. He is a proper football man, he lives and breathes it, he’s dedicated to his job and his sport.
“I’d probably wish it hadn’t been announced before this weekend but most people appreciate Arsene and what he has done in football. I respect him for what a good football man he is,” Moyes said.
