A road adjacent to English football club Manchester United's Old Trafford stadium is to be renamed Sir Alex Ferguson Way in honour of the club's previous manager, who retired in May after nearly 27 years at the helm.

Ferguson, who is now a director at the Premier League club, will be given the Honorary Freedom of the Borough of Trafford at a formal ceremony on Monday

The 71-year-old Ferguson says "to have a part of Trafford carrying my name is truly humbling".

Another former Manchester United manager, the late Matt Busby, has a street named after him close to the stadium. – Sapa
