Sir Alex Ferguson was named Premier League manager of the year at Northwest Football Awards.
The recently retired Manchester United boss guided the Reds to a record extending 20th top flight league title.
Sir Alex also won the Lifetime Achievement award for his achievenments at the club.
During his 27 years as manager at Old Trafford, he won 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups, four League Cups and two Champions League trophies.
He said “Thank you for giving me this Lifetime Achievement award. It’s special as I am following a great man in Dave Whelan who got this last year.
“I am a great admirer of the work he has done at Wigan. It was full deserved. But I hope I have justified the Award because it is special to me.
“I would just like to thank everyone who voted for me. And this will be the last football award I will ever get so I really do appreciate it.”
Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher won the Premier League Player of the Year at the 2013 Northwest Football Awards.
