Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is presently in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Salford Royal Hospital after he underwent surgery for a brain haemorrhage on Saturday.
The news was confirmed by the official Twitter handle of the club which tweeted that: “Sir Alex Ferguson has undergone surgery today for a brain haemorrhage. The procedure has gone very well but he needs a period of intensive care to aid his recovery. His family request privacy in this matter. Everyone at Manchester United sends our very best wishes.”
His family has also requested for privacy as the Scot recovers from the surgery.
Sir Alex Ferguson is undoubtedly the most successful British manager of all time after he won 38 trophies in his 26-year reign at Old Trafford before he retired in May 2013.
His last public appearance was at Old Trafford last Sunday when he presented Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger with a commemorative trophy for the outgoing Frenchman’s contributions to the Gunners.
Michael Carrick also wished Ferguson and his family well via his official Twitter handle as he tweeted that: “All my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family. Be strong boss.”
