Sir Alex Ferguson statue is unveiled at Old Trafford

Posted by - November 24, 2012 - Manchester United

It does all seem a little strange unveiling statues of people that are not only alive but actually present to see the unveiling, but yesterday Manchester United revealed their dedication to manager Alex Ferguson.

The club legend celebrated 26 years in charge of the club by having the statue unveiled by his wife Lady Cathy, with some former greats of the club either present or sending videos of congratulation, including David Beckham, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Bobby Charlton, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Eric Cantona and Cristiano Ronaldo.

In fairness it is the least the man deserves after his reign of success at the club, and one suspects that QPR will be the latest to feel the wrath of the manager’s thirst for victory.
