Pic: Fergie time? Paddy Power delivery 'emergency' Alex Ferguson to Old Trafford
We're pretty sure David Moyes won't see the funny side to this.
A quick glance at the papers and the internet today suggests it is open season on David Moyes and Manchester United now. The 3-1 defeat at the hands of Chelsea yesterday confirmed that United face a massive battle to nab a top four spot now, with any hopes of retaining their title surely gone.
After signing a six-year deal in the summer, nobody expects Moyes to be fired but Paddy Power decided to have a little fun at Old Trafford this morning by making a special delivery.
Encased in a 'break in case of emergency' box, a life size statue of Alex Ferguson, complete with hand on watch, was dropped off outside the stadium.
With the bookies offering odds of 7/1 for Fergie to manage a Manchester United game this season, this is certainly an attention grabbing stunt by the masters of the art.
