    It's ridiculously bad.
    In fact it's sacrilege.
    He was the greatest footballer I've had the privilege to see live on a number occasions and deserves better.

    Had he played at the top level internationally he'd be feted all over the world.
    Didn't Pele reckon he was the best player he'd seen?

    Melt it down. Bin it. Start all over again for goodness sake.

    Is it another James Corden wind up?

    My favourite football statue is of Southampton's Ted Bates.

    That Ted Bates one is hilarious.

    Ted Bates brings enjoyment to everyone, even people who don't really know who he is. The George Best one, dear oh dear, struggling to avoid an expletive.

    These commissions cost an awful lot of money. When they are this bad (like the Cristiano Ronaldo one also) isn’t there some sort of law where you don’t have to pay the sculptor, let alone exhibit it ?

    I think the sculpturer who did the Ronaldo one redid his. I think he had a bit of an artistic hissy-fit where he wouldn't admit he did it because it was bad but simply because he wanted to tweak his original or something like that.

    Edit - yes, here we go. He changed it to a "more serious" expression instead.

    That one is wonderfully bad. Even his mother wouldn't recognise him! Ha Ha the sculpture got the ball right though.

    I think the secret to being bad and avoiding ridicule is to be bad and humourous. The Best statue is bad and depressing.
