Manchester United has announced that the statue to honour the club legend Jimmy Murphy will be unveiled on May 3 outside the Stretford End at Old Trafford, Manchester. The fans and members of the public are welcome to attend the event, which will take place at the Theatre of Dreams, beginning at 16:00 BST. Also, the statue unveiling ceremony will take place between 17:00 and 17:30.

Before the statue gets revealed and seen by United supporters for the first time, the event will be emceed by Alan Keegan and feature remarks from the club and the Murphy family.

The event will take place outside the Stretford End, where fans can gather in a designated space. Also, attendees will be provided complimentary soft drinks.

Jimmy Murphy became the caretaker manager of Manchester United in their darkest times. His main contribution was taking the club to the FA Cup final, just weeks after the Munich Air Disaster in February, 1958, which included the entire Man Utd team.

His statue will be placed next to the existing statues of Sir Matt Busby, Sir Alex Ferguson, and the 'United Trinity' of Sir Bobby Charlton, George Best and Denis Law, outside the Old Trafford.

The idea for the statue was announced by the club in May, 2021. It is a very unique and heartwarming gesture towards the legendary coach to remember and thank him for his contribution to the club.
