He replied “The Bobby Moore statue will come with us to the new stadium. dg”

This has left some Olympic Stadium watchers confused whether it West Ham’s to take with them.

The memorial to England’s 1966 World Cup triumph depicts West Ham legend Bobby Moore, along with fellow West Ham players Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters, as well as Ray Wilson from Everton.

Newham council website says financial contributors to the Champions statue included the London Borough of Newham, West Ham United Football Club, Green Street SRB, Arts Council for England, and Arts & Business.
