A terrible news shocked the football world tonight: English football legend Sir Alex Ferguson is seriously ill in hospital because of a brain hemorrhage.
The former Manchester United boss had emergency surgery on Saturday and an official statement by the Old Trafford club said the procedure “had gone very well but he needs a period of intensive care to optimise his recovery”.
United’s club captain Michael Carrick said he was “devastated” to learn his former manager had undergone emergency surgery.
“All my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family. Be strong boss,” he wrote on Twitter.
This afternoon Doncaster Rovers, the club managed by Ferguson’s son Darren, announced their head coach couldn’t attend the match due to “personal reasons” but no one could imagine that was related to his famous father until Man United released their official statement.
Ferguson was seen last weekend at Old Trafford to greet Arsene Wenger, at his last visit to the historic ground as the Arsenal boss, joking with him and current Red Devils manager José Mourinho before kick off.
