Ferguson wins top EPL award

2012-05-15 14:34

London - Manchester United's Alex Ferguson has been voted the top manager in the first 20 years of the Premier League, and Ryan Giggs has been selected as the top player.

Ferguson's United sides have won the title 12 times, but his team lost this year's championship on goal difference to neighbours Manchester City on Sunday.

The 38-year-old Giggs has been part of all of United's Premier League title-winning sides and is the most decorated player in British football history.

He has made 598 Premier League appearances and is committed to playing for United next season.

The 70-year-old Ferguson also has no plans to leave United, where he has been in charge since 1986.

Votes were cast by a panel of experts.

    Well done!! How about that? Would have love to see look of a one mr.Tevez' face when he heard the news. Long live sir Alex! even if United is relegated and never wins another match, this man is forever a giant amongst men. And even then I will stay true.

      @Hallo, True, no denying and congrats. Why do you say it's meaningless?? How can any reward be meaningless, even the razzies isn't meaningless, it is there to acknowledge the worst in hollywood?? Congrats once again and IMHO probably the most expensive leagues that was ever claimed.

    Well they have to give things to the manure this year, I mean they couldn't win anything on the pitch.

      jowza1 - 2012-05-15 17:07

      BOB.shame we know you are a loserpool supporter.the discussion here is about people and teams way above you

      I think Liverpool should worry about themselves rather than what United are or aren't winning. 37 points behind United in a the league is cause for concern. Perhaps your intention is to defelect from the disgust or despair that you must feel after last season when the Anfiel faitful were shouting that King Kenny would be thier saviour. PS: City deserved the league and at the start of the year, United had all but given up on the league and it was only due to off field problems in the City camp that United came back into the picture. City's success can only be good for the EPL.

      What about the community shield. Where was that won. Oh by the way where did Looserfool finish in the league BELOW Everton He He He Believe Klown Kenny wants to take Liverpool to the champoinship next season

  • rgultig - 2012-05-15 17:17

    finally United won something this year

      BJ - 2012-05-16 09:01

      They won this season's Community Shield - certainly not less presigious than Micky Mouse Cup the scouse scum will be parading through their village.

    he's the best ever manager, any team could not afford to loose, thumbs up Sir Fergie...

  • Cyrus - 2012-05-16 10:36

    Congrats are in order. He is the most successful EPL coah in history but there will always be one question mark over whether he is truly the greatest of all time. He has nearly 30 years of experience behind him in one league with one team. I just wonder if coaches like Pep, Mourinho, Van Gaal etc would be even more successful if they were to spend such a long period at one club with some financial muscle.

    He deserved it.hez gud
