Sir Alex Ferguson battling for life after brain surgery

Former Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, has had brain surgery and is in intensive care, the club has announced.

“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,” the club tweeted on Saturday.

The Scot, 76, retired as United manager in May 2013 after winning 38 trophies during 26 years in charge.

He was at Old Trafford last Sunday when he presented Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger with a commemorative trophy.

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

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.

Ferguson famously won the Treble of Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League in 1999, the year in which he was knighted.

FIFA, sports associations, clubs, players and fans are sending well wishes.
