Dejected Ferguson congratulates City

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was generous in his praise after Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions - and expressed contentment with how his own side had performed over the course of the season.

• City win title in injury time
• Jolly: The greatest escape

United, who beat Sunderland 1-0 on Sunday thanks to Wayne Rooney's goal, looked to be heading towards another league title until City scored twice during injury time to beat ten-man QPR 3-2.

With that dramatic victory, Roberto Mancini's side finished the season above their rivals on goal difference, with both teams locked on 89 points.

"Nobody expected that," Ferguson told BBC Sport. "Everybody expected City to win, but they did it against ten men for half an hour and with five extra minutes to help them. But I congratulate City on winning the league. Anybody who wins it deserves it, because it's a long haul.

"At the end of our game our players didn't actually know the results. Now, they're really disappointed, I'm glad to say. There's no other way they should be. They conducted themselves brilliantly today.

"Their performance level was good. I'm pleased at our performance this season. Eighty-nine points would win most leagues. It wasn't our turn today."
