Manchester United won the Premier League title for the 20th time with nearly a month still left in the season after Robin van Persie’s hat trick sealed a 3-0 win over Aston Villa.
11 points clear of second-place Man City, having secured the title with four games to spare. United won 20th Premier League Title.
The same year Sir Alex Ferguson decided it was time to walk out at Old Trafford for the very last time as Manchester United manager.
An emotional Old Trafford rose to its feet as the great Sir Alex Ferguson walked out as manager of Manchester United for one final time. Following the announcement of his shock retirement days earlier, United’s most successful manager celebrated his 723rd game in charge of United with a dramatic last minute win against Swansea City.
But just before kick-off, the 71-year-old was given the most incredible of tributes as 70,000 red flags waved in unison to the song “My Way” by Frank Sinatra.
What an emotional and dramatic way to bow and walk away as the most decorated United manager of all time with the 20th title victory medal around his neck.
