Wes Brown believes former Manchester United teammates Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes are both deserving of statues outside Old Trafford in the future.
Brown featured in Sir Alex Ferguson’s Treble-winning side alongside Scholes and Giggs in 1999, and was in the Champions League-winning squad where the legendary duo were still ever-present nine years later.
Giggs is United’s record appearance maker, and generational talent Scholes is third in the all-time list.
The pair, among several other greats, are deserving of wider recognition at the stadium for their services to the club.
Brown discussed United players who could warrant statues after Manchester City revealed they will honour Spanish midfielder David Silva with his a statue outside the Etihad Stadium , as per Sky Sports.
“I think that will happen some day, especially with players like Scholesy, Ryan Giggs,” Brown told MUTV, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News.
“They’re probably the next two that you’ve got to look at – if anyone was looking at it. But they definitely deserve something.
“But you know, Sir Bobby and Denis Law and George Best, it took a while for them to get a statue. I think that’s what’s nice about it.”
Manchester United’s iconic statue of the ‘Holy Trinity’ Sir Bobby Charlton, Denis Law and George Best was erected in 2008 and unveiled in a ceremony that took players 40 years to the day from United’s maiden European Cup triumph.
More recently in 2012, Sir Alex Ferguson was recognised with a statue in front of the stand named after the legendary manager.
