City completed their first double over United since 1970 with a deserved 2-1 victory while a minute´s silence to mark the 50th anniversary of the Munich air disaster was observed perfectly by both sets of fans prior to kick-off.
"I am extremely proud of our team," said Eriksson. "If you go to Old Trafford and win you deserve it. But everyone who belongs to City, players, officials, must be proud of what our fans did here. Their behaviour was fantastic. And I am extremely honoured to be the club´s manager."
