Premier League: Manchester United beat Swansea


Manchester United ensured Ferguson's final game at Old Trafford ended on a triumphant note, as they received the Premier League trophy after beating Swansea 2-1.

Rio Ferdinand's first goal for five years gave Manchester United three points against Swansea City in Sir Alex Ferguson's last game as manager at "The Theatre Of Dreams".

His glorious career came to an end when he announced his retirement after 26 years at the club and winning 38 titles for the club.

Sir Alex Ferguson's final game as Manchester United manager at Old Trafford ended as so many have done before – with victory secured by a late goal. His glorious career came to an end after 26 years at the club and winning 38 titles for the club.

The statistics of the afternoon were almost a sideline. Javier Hernandez gave United a first-half lead, Michu equalising for Swansea before Ferdinand's finish three minutes from time completed the formalities.

Ferguson, who never felt the need to move into his technical area once, joined his players on the pitch after the final whistle, taking the microphone to reflect on his career.

He paid tribute to players, supporters and those at United who supported him in troubled early years before calling on Old Trafford to give its full support to new manager David Moyes once he completes his switch from Everton.
