Jimmy Murphy statue planned for Old Trafford

The club agreed that Murphy’s critical contribution to the rebuilding of United after Munich makes him worthy of a permanent tribute at Old Trafford.

Representatives of supporters’ groups seeking recognition for Murphy met with senior club officials and a member of the Murphy family this week to discuss their proposal. 

Various potential locations for a statue were floated and it was agreed that work would now proceed to explore the options in more detail, in consultation with fans.

Once completed, it would add to existing statues of Sir Matt Busby, Sir Alex Ferguson, and the

“United Trinity”

of Sir Bobby Charlton, George Best and Denis Law, outside Old Trafford.
