Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has attended a ceremony to commemorate the renaming of a street in his honour near Old Trafford.

Waters Reach, which runs adjacent to United's stadium, has been renamed Sir Alex Ferguson Way by Trafford Borough Council.

Ferguson, who won 13 Premier League titles and two Champions League titles with United, said: "I am delighted to accept this from Trafford Council.

"When I arrived at Old Trafford in 1986 I had little idea of the journey that awaited me.

"Over quarter of a century later, to receive the Freedom of the Borough of Trafford, and to have a part of Trafford carrying my name, is truly humbling."
