Ferguson Double 'Manager Of The year'
Sir Alex Ferguson admitted he was relieved the celebrations to mark his retirement were over as he was named the LMA's manager of the year for an unprecedented fourth time.
Ferguson, who also won the LMA's Premier League manager of the year award, said: "It has been overwhelming.
"In a way I am glad it is all over now - because it has been hard work!
"I think (West Brom manager) Steve Clarke should get an award because anyone who scores five against United deserves it.
"It has always placed a great emphasis on youth long before I came.
"Sir Matt Busby started that and took Manchester United into Europe, the first English club to do so.
"It's always been there and I have tried to maintain that though it is more difficult in the present climate - you have to scout abroad now but you are still looking for young people who can do well."
