A 108ft statue of Roy Hodgson is scheduled to return to the White Cliffs of Dover after a little local difficulty with high winds.
The fantastic statue is a new take on the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue overlooking Rio de Janeiro.
‘Roy the Redeemer’ needs to be in place soon if it is going to do its job of unsettling ‘Les Bleus’ ahead of England’s opening football game on Monday. Once in place it will be easily visible from the French coast.
The stunt by bookies Paddy Power is to promote the new England manager as he takes his team into this month’s European Football Championships. According to the bookmakers, the artwork is intended to give manager Roy ‘divine intervention’.
Roy has close connections to Kent – he has worked with Gravesend and Northfleet, Tonbridge Angels, Ashford Town and Maidstone United.
Fair Stood the Wind for France, or should it be against!
