Paddy Power erect David Moyes statue at Anfield

Paddy Powers unveiled a David Moyes ‘tribute’ statue at Anfield ahead of Liverpool’s home time with Chelsea today.

Brendan Rodgers and his team have rightly taken most of the plaudits for their attacking football that has seen them move clear in the title race, but the bookmaker has playfully acknowledged the role that former Manchester United manager David Moyes has played in the Merseysiders resurgence.

Never shy with publicity stunts, the latest is an 11ft tall bronze statue of the former United boss, placed close to the statue of Liverpool legend Bill Shankly, and bears the inscription, “DAVID MOYES For services to Liverpool Football Club” and shows Moyes in his characteristically troubled pose.

“The Moyes and Manchester United pairing may have had none of the magic of a drunken Tinder date, but there’s no doubt he’s the ‘chosen one’ for the Liverpool faithful who’ve also enjoyed seeing their club go from strength to strength this season,” a Paddy Power spokesperson said.

The statue has proven to be popular among both sets of supporters ahead of the big match at Anfield this afternoon.
