Manchester United legendary coach Sir Alex Ferguson has been “operated on by the brain as a result of brain haemorrhage,” his former club said Saturday night.
“Everything went well,” but Ferguson, 76, “needs to spend some time in intensive care to optimize recovery,” says Manchester United in a statement, while asking to respect “the intimacy of his family “.
Sir Alex’s son, Darren, currently in charge of the Doncaster club (D3 English), had missed Saturday’s match against Wigan “for family reasons,” according to a statement from the club.
Ferguson, a native of Glasgow, made a name for himself with the Scottish club Aberdeen, winner of the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1983. He retired at the end of spring 2013 and remains the coach the most successful of British football, from far away.
In addition to 26 seasons at the helm of the Red Devils, “Fergie”, with a strong character, has earned ManU 13 titles including the English Champion and two Champions Leagues. In 1999, he achieved an incredible hat-trick in the C1-Premier League-FA Cup.
He was back last week at Old Trafford to symbolically offer a vase to Arsène Wenger, Arsenal’s French manager, who has long been his rival and will retire at the end of the season.
In 2003, Sir Alex, a great lover of French wine and horse racing, had gone to hospital due to a heart problem.
