Great tribute

FIFA president Sepp Blatter and former United players Cristiano Ronaldo and David Beckham were among those not present at the unveiling who sent a pre-recorded message.
'He is unique because he has put a high standard to his club his players and also to himself,' Blatter said. 'I was so happy that I had the opportunity to bestow him with the FIFA President's award and he was happy to receive it. I am proud and I wish him well in the future to him and his family and the club Manchester United. Thank you, Sir Alex.'

Ronaldo added: 'You 100 per cent deserve this with what you have done. I wish to be there with you but my schedule is busy with games as you know. I hope to see you soon because I need to practice my English and not my Scottish. Thanks boss. All the best to you.'

Beckham added: 'Sorry I can't be there for this amazing day. My time at Manchester United was without doubt the best of my career and I cherish those moments.'

Van Nistelrooy, Cantona and Solskjaer were also all present at the ceremony

Well, well deserved. The greatest manager of all time in my book, nobody has done what he has done for such an extended period of time.

Personally, I always think its better when these things are done post retirement but none the less.

Nice looking statue too.

Rinus Michels and Johan Cruijff have had a bigger effect on modern football. A great manager none the less. I still feel that he lacks any tactical acumen.

What does Cruyff or Michels have to do with anything? i dont even....

Fergie might not be the best coach seeing as he stopped coaching years ago but he is certainly the greatest manager based on what he's won.

pls go

Fantastic tribute to one of the all time best. Well deserved.

The statue is ok although Chelsea's statue of Torres is far more life like Laughing

Top coach. He's in that upper 2% of the best coaches to ever sit the bench in this sport.

Because of all that he's done not only for United, but for football itself, his legacy will ultimately transcend this sport, making him one of the best coaches of all time in any sport.

On this side of the pond anyway, He's up there with greats like Vince Lombardi, Phil Jackson, and Pat Summitt for me.
