Arsenal to reveal three new statues outside stadium

Arsenal are set to unveil three statues outside the Emirates Stadium to commemorate a trio of legends as part of their 125th year anniversary celebrations, The Telegraph reports.

The Gunners have yet to reveal which three players will be identified in statue outside the ground, but the North Londoners are reportedly focusing on players who have distinguished themselves for the club since its founding in 1886. Thierry Henry topped a fans’ poll in 2008 as the greatest-ever Arsenal player and is rumoured to be one of the three.

It is unlikely management or executives will feature. Current boss Arsene Wenger and Herbert Chapman, the man who led Arsenal to two league titles in the 1930’s, have previously been honoured with busts. Two boardroom members, Ken Friar and the late Danny Fiszman, have bridges at the Emirates named after them.

Other notable Gunners players include Cliff Bastin, legend captain Tony Adams, Ian Wright and Liam Brady. Arsenal will unveil the statues between 3pm and 4pm on Friday afternoon.
