Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson has thanked officials of Salford Royal Hospital for the great care he received while he was at the medical facility.
The former Red Devils manager had emergency surgery on a brain haemorrhage on May 5 and was in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the hospital for several days.
Sir Alex Ferguson thanked the hospital in his first public appearance after surgery in a 48-second video posted on the club’s official Twitter handle.
His last appearance was on April 29 when he presented former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger with a commemorative trophy after the Frenchman decided to end his reign at the Emirates Stadium.
In the video, Sir Alex Ferguson said: “I want to thank the medical staff at Macclesfield, Salford Royal and Alexandra hospitals.
“Believe me, without those people who gave me such great care I would not be sitting here today. Thank you from me and my family.
“The good wishes do resonate very strongly with me. Thank you for the support you have given me.
“I will be back later in the season to watch the team and, in the meantime, all the best to Jose Mourinho and the players.” He concluded.
The Scot is undoubtedly the greatest manager in British football history after he won 38 trophies as Manchester United manager before retiring in the summer of 2013.
