Sir Alex Ferguson statue unveiled at Old Trafford

MANCHESTER, England (AP) -- A collection of former and current Manchester United stars gathered at Old Trafford on Friday to attend the unveiling of a statue of manager Sir 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.
