Sir Alex: Thank you

"I'd also like to remind you that when we had bad times here, the club stood by me, all my staff stood by me, the players stood by me and your job now is to stand by our new manager.

"Before I start blubbering, I just want to pay tribute to Paul Scholes... he's unbelievable; one of the greatest players this club has ever had and will ever have.

"Paul, we wish you a good retirement and I know you'll be around to annoy me! Also I'd just like you to join me in wishing Darren Fletcher a speedy recovery.

"The players... I wish the players every success in the future. You know how good you  are, you know the jersey you're wearing, you know what it means to everyone here and don't ever let yourself down. The expectation is always there. I'm going home, well, I'm going inside for a while, and I want to say thank you again from all the Ferguson family. Thank you."
