Ferguson surgery: Drogba, Ronaldo & Beckham show support

Ferguson surgery: Drogba, Ronaldo & Beckham show support”

The post said: "Manchester United would like to thank the wider football world for the messages of support following the news that Sir Alex Ferguson underwent emergency surgery on Saturday evening".

"The procedure has gone very well but he needs a period of intensive care to optimise his recovery", a statement said.

Many of his ex-players have sent their best wishes - including David Beckham, who's told his old boss to "keep fighting". "His family request privacy in this matter", the statement said.

Ferguson nurtured Ronaldo at United and the attacker won the first of his five Ballons d'Or under his tutelage at Old Trafford in 2008, having also claimed his first Champions League title the same year.

With his uncompromising "hairdryer treatment" style of management, he led United to 13 Premier League titles, two Champions League crowns, five FA Cups and four League Cups. "Thoughts with all the family at this sad time". Everyone thinks it was all this "hairdryer" but the boss enjoys a good time, really enjoys his racing and is good company when you're around him.

Ferguson has been married to wife Cathy since 1966.

The first indications of a health emergency came after Ferguson's son, Darren, the manager at Doncaster, missed the third-tier club's final match of the season earlier Saturday.

Trump Says Special Counsel Should Never Been Appointed to Probe Russia Collusion
Shortly after the report was released, Trump heralded it on Twitter and called for the investigations to end. But the probe did provide important public revelations.

Sir Alex began his playing career aged 16 with Queen's Park in 1957 in Scotland.

But before that he had transformed Scottish side Aberdeen to challenge the dominant Glasgow sides of Rangers and Celtic in the 1980s.

His future at United was reportedly at stake when United travelled to Nottingham Forest for an FA Cup third-round tie in January 1990, but they won by a solitary goal.

While it might be a day of celebration for one side of Manchester, with Pep's team set to be presented with the league trophy at the end of the game, Guardiola was aware that city rivals United were focusing on matters away from the football pitch.

"Ron Atkinson brought me to Manchester United but the boss had a big influence on me 30 years before I left - and that prolonged my career".

The outpouring of love and support from so many men who played under Sir Alex through his time at United just serves to highlight how important a figure he has been in so many footballing lives.

Willie Miller, who served as Aberdeen captain under Ferguson, said he was "staggered" to hear the news. Stay strong boss. Thoughts are with you and your family. "Hoping the great man does what he does best and wins this challenge", he added.
