David Moyes: 'Departing Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger a great competitor'

David Moyes: 'Departing Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger a great competitor'”

David Moyes knows better than most the perils of succeeding a long-serving and successful manager so when the West Ham boss is well aware of the pitfalls that could await whoever succeeds Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

Earlier on Friday, Wenger said that it felt like "the right time" to end his 22-year stay at the North London outfit at the conclusion of the current campaign.

Wenger will leave Arsenal at the end of the season after almost 22 years in charge and Moyes, who took over at Manchester United after Alex Ferguson retired in 2013, is aware of how tough it can be to follow long-standing and successful managers.

The Scot was handed the reigns at the London Stadium in November a year ago, and it is hard to argue that he has not done a good job so far, with the Hammers sitting fairly comfortably in 14th spot in the Premier League table, six points clear of 18th placed Southampton.

Now in charge of the Hammers, Moyes will take his team across London to face Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday.

West Ham United manager David Moyes has described Arsene Wenger as "a great competitor" after the Frenchman announced his decision to leave Arsenal. "It'll be tough for whoever takes the job".

"Real football people appreciate what he (Wenger) has done. He's dedicated to his job, he's been dedicated to his sport and he's a real proper football man". "I respect him for what a good football man he is".
