Alex Ferguson statue unveiling at Old Trafford

A collection of former and current Manchester United stars
gathered at Old Trafford on Friday to attend the unveiling of a
statue of manager Alex Ferguson.

Eric Cantona and Ruud van Nistelrooy were present as the 9-foot
bronze statue was unveiled. Also in attendance were Peter
Schmeichel – the Danish goalkeeper described by Ferguson as the
”buy of the century” – and Norwegian forward Ole Gunnar
Solskjaer, who scored United’s injury-time winner in the 1999
Champions League final.

Manchester United players, including Wayne Rooney and Robin van
Persie, also got a look at the statue, which depicts the Scottish
manager with his arms crossed.

Ferguson has been United’s manager for 26 years, and is the
Premier League’s most successful manager with 12 titles.
