MANCHESTER UNITED TO HONOUR ALEX FERGUSON WITH A NINE FEET BRONZE STATUE
Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson is to be honoured with a bronze statue outside Old Trafford to celebrate his 25 years in charge of the club
The Scot, who has won 24 major trophies in a quarter of a century, is the club's longest serving manager and already has a stand named after him at the stadium.
United have asked award-winning sculptor Philip Jackson to create the 9ft bronze statue which will be placed outside the recently renamed North Stand.
United already have two permanent statues outside their famous home ground - one of legendary manager Sir Matt Busby overlooking the East Stand, and the other known as the 'the United Trinity' of George Best, Denis Law and Bobby Charlton.
