Charlton hails long-serving pair

Published Add your comment

Sir Bobby Charlton believes Sir Alex Ferguson and Ryan Giggs are next in line for statues at Old Trafford.

Charlton is already there alongside Denis Law and the late George Best after an unveiling ceremony on Thursday for the so-called Manchester United trinity. The figures look out to another statue, built in the memory of former manager Sir Matt Busby.

Asked who might be next in line for a statue, Charlton, whose appearance record was beaten by Giggs, said: "Alex Ferguson and Ryan Giggs will be here. What more can they do? They deserve it."
