Sir Alex Ferguson finally made a public announcement after undergoing a lifesaving surgery. On the 5th May, the football legend was taken into a hospital suffering from a severe brain aneurism. Earlier today he used Manchester United’s website to thank everyone for the support during his hardest days.
“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.”
Sir Alex Ferguson retired from the manager position at Manchester United 5 years ago. He will remain in the football history as the most successful British manager having won 38 trophies during his 26 years in charge.
