Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson said little after yesterday's amazing 5-5 draw at West Bromwich Albion.

Fergie headed off into retirement without giving any interviews - but not before sharing a last glass of red with rival boss Steve Clarke.

Instead, the 71-year-old Manchester United boss uttered just three words to a TV crew as he walked to the team coach.

Asked how he felt, Fergie replied: "Emotional, very emotional."

Then he was off.
