Blog: Sir Alex's final game

18:58 Michael Carrick, who captained the side, has given his reaction to today's game: "It's a bit funny in the dressing room because of the situation. We've thanked the manager for everything he's done and he's thanked us. We're ready to move on and there are new challenges for all of us. We're looking forward to it. The manager wanted to win but the job for the season is done. I'm sure he can retire very satisfied." (MF)

18:55 As I mentioned earlier (18:11), the boss was keen to salute the United fans after the final whistle and thanks to our colleagues at MUTV, you can watch the moment by clicking the ‘Sir Alex says goodbye’ tab in the video section above. (MF)

18:27 As it's their final home game of the season, the West Brom players have just performed a lap of honour for the Baggies supporters, bidding them farewell until August. The United fans have already left and the rest of the stadium is beginning to empty, bringing the curtain down on an eventful, emotional and entertaining day at The Hawthorns. (MF)

18:20 In one final nod towards Sir Alex’s last outing, the entire stadium rose to applaud him as he walked off the pitch with his United players. Notably, he looked considerably more relaxed and composed compared to last weekend, but you could see that the moment meant a lot to him. (MF)
