Premier League - Ferguson, Vidic win season awards

Ferguson, Vidic win season awards
Manchester United's Sir Alex Ferguson and Nemanja Vidic have won the Barclays Premier League manager and player of the season awards.

United boss Ferguson, 69, has been 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.

United sealed the title with a 1-1 draw at Blackburn Rovers last weekend, although their 2-1 win over closest rivals Chelsea the previous weekend effectively won them the league.

They face Barcelona in a Wembley final on May 28 as they bid to win their fourth European Cup.
