After over 26 years in charge, Sir Alex Ferguson finally stepped down as manager of Manchester United.
Probably the greatest manager of all time, Ferguson sent his boys out one last time with one word in their heads. Attack.
And that they did. After going 3-0 and 5-2 up Fergie’s United were halted by on-loan Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku, bagging a hat-trick whilst terrorising United’s defence.
Ferguson broke a record or two in his final ever game.
It was the highest ever score draw in the Premier League and it was United’s joint highest scoring game with him in charge.
Highlights of Ferguson’s last game in charge can be seen here:
