Ferguson wins LMA gong

Ferguson was also named the Barclays Premier League manager of the
year following Manchester United’s title triumph, and picked up a
special merit award for having passed 2,000 matches as manager.
Speaking at the LMA awards dinner in London via video link from Old
Trafford, Ferguson said: “It’s a wonderful honour – it has been a
fantastic season for us in the most difficult league in the world.”
Carlo Ancelotti, sacked by Chelsea on Sunday, attended the dinner
and Ferguson said to him: “Carlo you are a fantastic man and you
have showed great courage in coming to the dinner tonight, well
done.”
