Scot has replaced Ferguson at Old Trafford.
Former Everton winger Pat Nevin says that whoever takes over from the recently departed David Moyes in the Goodison Park hot seat will have a tough job succeeding the Scot, reports BBC Sport Online.
Moyes was named as the man to replace retiring Manchester United head coach Sir Alex Ferguson in the Old Trafford dug-out from next season, resulting in the Toffees needing to find a new manager to take over from the Glaswegian on Merseyside this summer.
As yet, Everton chairman Bill Kenwright has still to make a final decision on who exactly the new man in charge will be, with Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez thought to be the overwhelming favourite for the role.
However, either way Nevin feels that Moyes has some fairly big shoes to fill after 11 hugely successful years at Goodison, during which time he won 218 of the 518 matches that he was in charge of the club, losing on only 161 occasions in the process.
“A lot are saying the shoes of Ferguson are very big to fill,” said Nevin.
“In some ways though the shoes of David Moyes are even bigger to fill.”
