United savour title win with bus parade

14 May 2013 02:12

Manchester United's players and staff were joined by thousands of supporters in a victory parade on Sunday to celebrate their 20th league title.

Fans gathered on the streets around the club's Old Trafford stadium to not only mark their Premier League crown but to commemorate the reign of retiring manager Alex Ferguson.

The Scot, who has decided to retire at the age of 71, enjoyed 26 trophy-laden years in Manchester.

After leaving the ground, the open-top bus tour travelled towards the city centre and arrived at Albert Square, where the playing staff and management were joined by more fans.

Supporters lined every part of the route from the stadium to the square, climbing lamp posts, landmarks and rooftops to get a view of the players.

United striker Wayne Rooney, who has states his desire to seek a transfer away from Old Trafford, joined the celebrations and received a mixed reception from the fans who lined the parade's route.

Ferguson revealed after the game against Swansea on Sunday that the 27-year-old had handed in a transfer request.
