Leeds pay tribute former manager Revie with bronze statue

A bronze statue of former England and Leeds United boss Don Revie has been unveiled at Elland Road 40 years after the team last won the FA Cup. The 8ft statue by Barnsley sculptor Graham Ibbeson was revealed by players from the 1972 cup-winning team.

Leeds beat Arsenal 1-0 to win the centenary FA Cup at Wembley.

The statue stands in an enclosed location opposite the ground's East Stand and weighs about 30st (200kg).

Revie's son Duncan said the statue was a "great honour and tribute" to his father and "that wonderful team".

He said: "That era was a golden era for Leeds."
