Rio Ferdinand said Sir Alex Ferguson deserved a victorious send-off in his final match at Old Trafford.
The Manchester United defender told Sky Sports: "The man's desire to win football matches, to keep bring success to the football club, he deserved to get three points on his last home game."
Talking about the moment Sir Alex told the squad of his retirement decision, Ferdinand said: "It was emotional, he has had so many years here, this is like his second home and for us to hear him say it was - we were devastated.
"But as you know this club is a great club and we have to move on and he wants that."
