PLAYERS: Rio Ferdinand
Rio Ferdinand scored his first goal in over 5 years to put Manchester United up 2-1 over Swansea and send off Sir Alex Ferguson as a winner in his last match. The goal from the big defenseman was off of a corner kick and the reaction from Rio was priceless.  Sir Alex Ferguson will be remembered as one of the all-time greats for any sport. Sir Alex hung up his managerial cleats with Manchester United today and the response he received was legendary, like himself.   He received a guard of honour from both United and Swansea.   Ferguson took the reins of Manchester United in 1986 and since then the iconic coach has won an astounding 38 trophies, including 13 Premier League championships, two Champions League titles and five FA Cups. via Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
