Sir Alex Ferguson is ‘awake and talking to family’ after emergency surgery for brain haemorrhage
The 76-year-old’s response to treatment has pleased doctors at the Salford Royal Hospital, although they still claim that the Scot will face a long road to recovery after his brain haemorrhage.
News of Ferguson’s admittance to intensive care and his emergency surgery rocked the football world at the weekend, with scores of figures from around the game lining up to wish him well.
Ferguson won 38 trophies in 26 seasons as United boss before retiring from his role at Old Traford in 2013.
In the five years that have followed he has still been a regular presence at United games.
