ManU manager Ferguson set for emotional Old Trafford farewell


LONDON: The eyes of the football world will be on Old Trafford on Sunday when Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson oversees his final home game before retirement after 26 years in charge of the English champions.

Further proof that an extraordinary era was coming to an end arrived late Saturday when long-serving United midfielder Paul Scholes, a one-club man who came up through an Old Trafford youth system revitalised under Ferguson’s guidance, announced he too was retiring.

Ferguson’s retirement announcement on Wednesday stunned the sporting world and relegated the Queen’s Speech—the formal declaration of the UK government’s legislative programme for the forthcoming Parliamentary session—to second place on British television news programmes.

Swansea are the opponents for Ferguson’s Old Trafford farewell, which fittingly will include the official presentation of the Premier League trophy to United.
