​Watford commission Graham Taylor statue

Published on: 18 February 2017

A statue is to be commissioned by Watford to honour the club's former manager Graham Taylor, reports BBC News.

Taylor, who also managed England from 1990 until 1993, died on 12 January, aged 72.

A statue celebrating his footballing career will be erected at Watford's Vicarage Road ground, the club announced.

A pre-season tribute fixture in Taylor's memory is also being planned.

The exact location of the statue and details of its design have not yet been decided.

Watford said it would be working on the plans with fans' representatives and the borough council.

On its website, Watford FC described the proposed statue and pre-season match as "two significant tributes... to remember Watford's greatest ever manager".
