David Moyes, who tried and was unsuccessful in succeeding the legendary Sir Alex Fergurson at Manchester United, has indicated that it will be tough for whoever succeeds Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.
Speaking ahead of this weekend's league fixtures, Moyes said: "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.
Real football people appreciate what he (Arsene Wenger) has done. He is a proper football man, he lives and breathes it, he’s dedicated to his job and his sport."
Now in charge at West Ham, Moyes will take the Hammers across London to face Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday.
The club has performed much better ever since Moyes took over but they are not yet completely safe from the threat of relegation.
The fact Arsenal will be playing Atletico Madrid in the first leg of a Europa League semi-final just four days after Sunday’s game, means Arsene may rest key players which Moyes would be hoping would work in West Ham's favour.
