Fans adorn Edwards statue with United shirt

Tue Feb 05, 2008 11:40 pm

In the week of Munich memorials, Manchester United fans have not forgotten the former national icon, Duncan Edwards, who was among the 23 who lost their lives in the plane crash 50 years ago.

The statue commemorating Edwards life, created by sculptor James Butler, was unveiled in the town centre of his hometown of Dudley in October 1999 by his mother and Sir Bobby Charlton.

And yesterday it bore a current United shirt with the message 'Legend - not forgotten'.

it was a really good thing to do, but if the AIG logo was not there it would have been better.

It would have been but it's hard to find a United shirt without the AIG logo these days, nothing they could do about it.
