Does anyone know the location of Dhyan Chand's statue??

There supposedly is a statue dedicated to former Indian hockey great Dhayn Chand (with four hands and four hockey sticks) erected by a sports club in Vienna.

Many press articles and internet resources talk about this, but none give the location of the statue!!

Would any local expert be able to guide on the location of this statue? Is it still standing??

Never heard or seen that statue . I only know one statue of an Indian on Coblenz but nobody can tell me who it is (-_^)

The only hockey ground I know is next to the Praterstadion.

There are some Indians playing in the cricket ground next it, so they may know it

This statue is a myth. I checked with the Austrian Hockey Association and it simply does not exist!
