MOST COMMENTED

Alex Ferguson on Monday received his fourth League Managers’ Association award for manager of the year. In accepting the award, the retiring Manchester United coach said he was relieved that the celebrations to mark his retirement were now over.

"It has been overwhelming. The club has been fantastic and congratulations to West Brom with the way they handled yesterday,” Ferguson said, referring to his last-ever match as a coach, the 5-5 draw between United and West Brom at the Hawthorns on Sunday. "In a way I am glad it is all over now - because it has been hard work! I think (West Brom manager) Steve Clarke should get an award because anyone who scores five against United deserves it."

Ferguson added that he was confident he is leaving the club in a position of growth, especially following United’s triumph in the inaugural Under-21 Premier League.

Cardiff City coach Malky Mackay was also honored at the LMA awards dinner. He was named Championship manager of the season after winning the title and leading his club to promotion next season.
