Sir Alex Ferguson: Legendary Manchester United boss will bow out on Sunday

Sir Alex Ferguson: Legendary Manchester United boss will bow out on Sunday

Ferguson is calling time on his 26-year career at Old Trafford, with Everton boss David Moyes stepping into his shoes from 1 July.

Speaking at his final press conference before Sunday's clash with West Bromwich Albion, Ferguson said: "It has been amazing.

"Sunday (the home game against Swansea) was amazing and the parade on Monday was unbelievable.

"I thought the scenes after the treble in 1999 couldn't be beaten but I think Monday probably did.

"I went home that night and got 10 hours sleep, I think for the first time in my life. Cathy (Ferguson's wife) kept coming up and I think she was checking if I was still alive. It was marvellous."

Ferguson was presented with a cake by the media in honour of the 26 years he has spent at Old Trafford and joked: "It's fully deserved.

"There have been some times when I have not agreed with what people have written and when you write positive things I tend to dismiss them.

"But I have never held a grudge. It is not my style."

Ferguson confirmed that Anders Lindegaard will start his final game as United boss and that Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand will be on the bench against West Brom.

"Anders will be in goal. I will play one or two younger players, and I want to play Jonny Evans and Phil Jones at centre-half because they are the future," he said.

"Nemanja and Rio will just have to make do with a place on the bench."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
