Archive: Statue 'proud moment' for Ferguson

Sir Alex Ferguson describes the erection of a statue in his honour at Old Trafford last November as a "proud moment".

Addressing the crowd outside the stadium, the Manchester United manager praises the "great players", coaches and medical staff he has worked with since taking over in 1986, joking that his wife is the "only one who can control" him.

Former players paid tribute to Ferguson after the unveiling, including former captain Bryan Robson, goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel and strikers Ruud van Nistelrooy and Andrew Cole.
