It has been confirmed that Manchester United will finally be unveiling the statue of manager Sir Alex Ferguson this month. The statue was commissioned to mark the fact that Sir Alex has been at the club for 25 years and will be unveiled on his 26th anniversary at Old Trafford.
Manchester United will unveil the statue of Sir Alex Ferguson outside Old Trafford on Friday November 23, ahead of their match against Queens Park Rangers on the Saturday. The ironic thing is that Queens Park Rangers were Fergusons first opponents at Old Trafford on November 22, 1986.
The statue of Sir Alex Ferguson has been sculpted by Philip Jackson and is set to take place in a prominent position outside the Sir Alex Ferguson stand. The Sir Alex Ferguson stand was formerly the North stand but changed its name last year to celebrate the legendary manager.
There is set to be a fantastic turnout for the unveiling of the Sir Alex Ferguson statue, with key figures from his 26 years set to appear. Sir Alex Ferguson is the most successful manager in British history and it is unlikely that we will ever see a manager achieve the same success at the same club for so long, ever again.
