David Moyes admits that replacing Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford is 'the hardest things to do'.

Moyes was confirmed the successor of the 71-year-old as he claimed that last season would be his final of his 26 year stint.

The Scot went on to praise his predecessor Sir Alex claiming that it would be a huge job for anyone coming in to replace the iconic man at the club after the loyalty and dedication towards the game. 

Moyes also praised the success that Sir Alex had brought to Manchester United over a 25 year period. 

"Anybody managing Manchester United would have a challenge, even Sir Alex," said Moyes to reporters.

"But for somebody following Sir Alex, that's the hardest thing to do. What he did will never be repeated.

"For anybody to do 25 years and for the trophies and the championships he has won, it would be incredible for anybody else to achieve that.

"It's a big job and one I am really looking forward to. I have been overwhelmed already.

"We dropped into Thailand on the way to Sydney and everywhere you go, if you are involved with Manchester United, everybody wants to meet the players and everybody wants to be involved.

"It's just a fantastic football club."
