Manchester United fans wish Sir Alex Ferguson a speedy recovery

Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson remains in intensive care after having emergency surgery on Saturday for a brain haemorrhage.

A Man United statement said the procedure “had gone very well” but there is no update on the 76-year-old’s condition.

He seemed in good health last Sunday when he presented outgoing Arsenal manager and long-term rival Arsene Wenger with a commemorative trophy.

The Scot retired as United manager in May 2013 after winning 38 trophies during 26 years in charge.

The most successful manager in the history of the British game, Ferguson’s trophy haul at Old Trafford included 13 Premier League titles, two Champions League crowns, five FA Cups and four League Cups.

He famously won the Treble in 1999, the year in which he was knighted.

Ferguson’s family have requested privacy as he recovers in Salford Royal Hospital.

The footballing world came together, to pay with the Scot a speedy recovery…
