Destined to fail? Managers following in the footsteps of legends
WIth Moyes taking over from Fergie - how have others managers got on taking over from legends?
The news pretty much every person in the world knew already has been confirmed - David Moyes is the new Manchester United boss.
And what a task he faces. Moyes must step into the shoes of Sir Alex Ferguson, the man who won pretty much everything during his glittering 26-year spell in charge at Old Trafford.
Fortunatley for the Red Devils, the change of manager has been handled fairly seamlessly - in the past great clubs haven't quite had that luxury and have suffered because of it.
Brian Clough for example hung around for a little too long at Nottingham Forest, took them down before retiring and they haven't been the same since.
Despite that, Moyes' faces a huge task and history isn't necessarily on his side - take a look at how the men who have replaced managerial icons at some of the biggest clubs in the world have gotten on.
