A pair of former team-mates of Bobby Moore have backed the council’s campaign to have a statue built of the World Cup-winning captain.
West Ham greats Harry Redknapp and Frank Lampard senior have joined former England manager Terry Venables and current Hammers captain Mark Noble in supporting The People’s Statue campaign for the Barking legend.
Barking and Dagenham Council are looking to crowd-source £167,579 by February for the statue.
I’m surprised it hasn’t been done a long, long while ago,” said Lampard.
“It’s great that people are now taking the time to go back into it and make sure it gets done.
