Surely he deserved the award, reclaiming the Barclays Premier title from Chelsea
Manchester United's Sir Alex Ferguson and Nemanja Vidic have won the Barclays Premier League manager and player of the season awards.
69-year-old Ferguson was rewarded for guiding a team many thought would struggle this season to the Premier League title and a Champions League final against Barcelona.
It is United's - and Ferguson's - 12th Premier League triumph, and a record 19th overall top-flight title for the club. It is Ferguson's ninth such award.
Serbia centre-half Vidic, 29, has been a key player for the club, making more league appearances than any other team-mate this season (35) and scoring five goals in the process.
It is the second time Vidic has won the award, which is voted for by representatives of football's governing bodies, the media and supporters.
Winning the Champions league May 28 ahead of Barcelona, the best club in Europe currently will be the icing on the cake
