Man Utd win Barclays Premier League 2011

The youngster showed why he is so highly rated with an excellent display as he anticipated United attacks and snuffed out danger with well-timed tackles.


Wayne Rooney shed his own tears before breaking the hearts of Blackburn supporters with the penalty that not only earned Manchester United a record-breaking 19th title, but also kept Rovers lingering on the threshold of relegation.

And later the schoolboy Everton fan and former Goodison Park star confessed his personal satisfaction at the triumph because it removed Liverpool's name from the record books, saying he was overcome with emotion at the final whistle.

United announce title parade

Manchester United will hold a victory parade in the city on May 30 to celebrate winning the Barclays Premier League title after a 1-1 draw against Blackburn.

The event will take place at lunchtime and the open-top bus parade will give fans the chance to join in the celebrations of a record-breaking 19th league title and also a potential Champions League success.

United's chief executive David Gill has revealed the club has been inundated with pleas from fans for a parade and he feels that it is a perfect way to honour this season's achievements.

'Breaking the record of league title wins is a big day in the club's illustrious history,' he said. 'We have received many letters and e-mails from fans encouraging us to hold a public celebration of that achievement and we believe this is a fitting way to mark it.'

Sir Richard Leese, leader of Manchester City Council, said: 'Manchester United winning their 19th top flight title is a remarkable and historic achievement.

'We're sure fans will come out in their droves to celebrate and acclaim their heroes and that 30 May will be a memorable day for the whole city.'

'It was a long time before I actually took the kick and I was a nervous wreck,' said Rooney. 'Of course, it was always on my mind that this kick could win us the 19th title. It was a great personal satisfaction for me after all the ups and downs of the season.

'Winning the Premier League is a great feeling for us. And it's even more special for me because we have passed Liverpool. It is a great achievement for the whole club and for the players.

'We're now the most successful team in English football. And obviously being an Evertonian, it is all the more special for me that it is United's 19th title - and the one that has taken us past our main rivals Liverpool.

'It was terrifying standing there, just waiting to take the penalty. I just had to try to compose myself.

'The main thing was I knew where I was putting it - I had been practising them all week in training.'

It has been a rollercoaster 12 months for Rooney, who threatened to quit the club in November and for a long time struggled for form after injury and his disappointing World Cup campaign with England last summer.

Rooney's team-mate Ryan Giggs, who celebrated winning his 12th title, insisted being crowned champions was as special as ever. 'This is the trophy you want to win and I am so pleased,' he said.

'Twenty years ago nobody would have imagined we could ever reach 19. To overturn that sort of deficit on Liverpool is a great credit to the club, the manager and all the players who've been involved.

'It's great, obviously, to put one over our biggest rivals. This is what you live for and this is why I'm still playing.'

And Giggs was quick to dismiss the socalled experts who have criticised Ferguson's class of 2011 for not being up to the standards of previous United sides.

He said: 'We've just won the title and we're through to the Champions League final. Yes, we're a rubbish team, aren't we?

'Maybe earlier on in the season, we weren't playing great football, but since the turn of the year we've played some great stuff and deserve to be champions.'

Rooney scored from the penalty spot to earn United a 1-1 draw at Blackburn Rovers and claim the point needed to wrap up the title.

He said: 'Winning the Premier League is an incredible feeling and to get that 19th title to become the most successful English club is brilliant.

'Of course for me personally, being an Everton fan, it's even more special 19 times. It's a great feeling for the whole club, the team, the fans, everyone.'

Team-mate Michael Owen was stunned by Rooney's new look.

He tweeted: 'None of us thought Wazza would send that picture! He is madder than we thought!!!'
