Manchester United wins Premier League title
Manchester United tied visiting Arsenal, 0-0, yesterday to capture its third consecutive Premier League title and match Liverpool's mark of 18 league championships.
In a poorly played game between two of England's glamour clubs, United won its 11th league title in 17 seasons. All came under manager Alex Ferguson, who has 25 major trophies in his 23 years at Old Trafford.
"It makes you want to go on forever," said the 67-year-old Ferguson, who already has put off retirement once.
Amid the celebrations, Argentina striker Carlos Tevez appeared to wave farewell to the fans in his last home game, with his loan deal two weeks from ending. More than a thousand United fans converged on the directors' exit and players' tunnel, demanding that the team keep him.
"It's emotional. I like Manchester, and I like the fans," Tevez said.
Asked if he wanted to stay at the club, he said: "It's very difficult."
La Liga - Barcelona clinched the title when Real Madrid lost, 3-2, at Villarreal. Barcelona has 86 points with three games left. Madrid has 78 with two to play.
This is the 19th Spanish league title for Barcelona, which completed its first domestic double in 11 years. The team won the Copa del Rey last Wednesday.
Next up for Barcelona is Manchester United in the Champions League final May 27 in Rome.
Serie A - Inter Milan clinched its 17th title when AC Milan lost, 2-1, to Udinese. Going into the match, AC Milan needed to win, but knew Inter could still take the title if it won its match with Siena tonight.
