Nicky Winmar responds to calls for a statue of THAT iconic image
Nicky Winmar would love a statue of his iconic image to be made.
The St Kilda great is remembered for the stand he took against crowd racism at Victoria Park in 1993, immortalised in this photo.
But Winmar has told 3AW he wants it to be at St Kilda’s home in Moorabbin, not at Victoria Park.
“It’d probably go missing in Collingwood!” he said.
In a wide-ranging interview, Winmar also said he hopes Aboriginal footballers aren’t viewed prejudicially.
“I’ve heard rumours they’re not going to recruit Indigenous players because they’re ‘too hard to control’, which is just wrong,” he said.
