Ex Man Utd Boss Alex Ferguson undergoes brain surgery

Posted On 07 May, 2018 0

Saturday night wasn't a very happy one for Alex Ferguson, his family, Manchester United and the football club's fans as the former Red Devils manager had to undergo an emergency brain surgery. A Manchester United statement on the weekend mentioned: "Sir Alex Ferguson has undergone emergency surgery today for a brain haemorrhage."

The 76-year old legendary boss was admitted to the hospital after falling ill at his residence, where he had to undergo this emergency procedure. "Sir Alex remains in intensive care, here at Salford Royal Hospital. There is no further update on his condition currently, but we now know that the procedure following the brain haemorrhage went very well," said Alan Irwin of Sky Sports on Monday. There has been no update since then, but he is reported to be still recovering in hospital.

He managed Manchester United for a record period of 27 years, between 1986 and 2013, during which he led them to 13 Premier League titles and 25 other pieces of silverware, including two UEFA Champions League titles. Ever since the news came out, several managers, players and others have paid tribute on social media to the football legend and have wished him a speedy recovery.

One such post was that of Cristiano Ronaldo's on Instagram:

His former club also released a statement later, saying: "Manchester United would like to thank its friends in the wider football world for the countless messages of support that have been conveyed following the news that Sir Alex Ferguson underwent emergency surgery on Saturday evening. "As well as being uppermost in the thoughts of our own players, past and present, Sir Alex has been the subject of many warm and touching comments from other clubs, governing bodies and individuals in the beautiful game. Thank you."
