Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson added another award to his shelve last Sunday as he received a special BBC Sports Personality Diamond Award during the show's 60th edition.

The Scot, 71, retired in May after more than 1,500 matches within his 26 years in charge at Old Trafford as manager. Ferguson won 38 trophies during his time at the club, including 13 league titles, two Champions League crowns, five FA Cups and four League Cups.

"This is a wonderful honour for me. Thanks to the BBC and everyone for this award," said

Ferguson stood down after helping United secure the 2012-13 Premier League title, with fellow Scot and Everton Manager, David Moyes taking over.

"Sir Alex's achievements are unique. We want to honour and recognise this by celebrating his final incredible year as a manager with this special award,” said Barbara Slater, director of BBC Sport. :

In 2001, Sir Alex Ferguson won the Sports Personality Lifetime Achievement award after claiming some of the most prestigious trophies in the round leather game – with the unique 1999 Treble of Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League wins.

Ferguson during his time at the club contributed significantly to the career of some of the best players in the football world such as Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Scholes.
