Alex Ferguson Recovering From Emergency Brain Surgery

Ferguson undergoes emergency brain surgery

Ferguson won 38 trophies during his time at United including 13 league titles and two Champions Leagues, over 26 years before he stepped down in 2013.

Ronaldo, who considers Ferguson as a father figure has won major milestones under the former manager, including three premier league titles, one UCL title and also the first of his five Ballon d'Or.

Messages of support and well wishes have come in from footballers all around the world and Guardiola took time to send his best wishes to his former rival and his family. Stay strong and hope together with everyone you recover. "Be strong, Boss!" Real Madrid's centre-forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, commented on his official Twitter account.

In a tweet on Sunday night, Manchester United thanked the "wider football world" for their messages of support.

Arsene Wenger said he was as shocked as everybody else to hear about Sir Alex Ferguson's health problems and that the former Manchester United manager "looked in flawless shape" when they met last week.

Sky Sports News reporter James Cooper has been at the Manchester hospital throughout Sunday but he is not expecting an update on Ferguson's condition in the short-term.

Scott McTominay: Thoughts & prayers are with you and your family boss.

There were concerns on Saturday afternoon when his son Darren Ferguson missed Doncaster's final game of the season against Wigan due to "family reasons".

Ferguson doesn't want to be seen to overshadow the present incumbent and none of United's four managers since he stepped down have considered him a threat, appreciating that Manchester United is what it is because Ferguson was given time not only to build a great team, but to build a great football club.

David Beckham, perhaps the most high-profile former player of Ferguson's United reign, offered his support, posting a picture on Instagram of him signing a contract as a teenager alongside Ferguson.

"Everyone at Manchester United sends our very best wishes".

United's star keeper David de Gea, 27, posted a tweet with two prayer emojis with the words: "Sir Alex".

City captain Vincent Kompany, 32, said: "Hang in there Sir Alex".

"A big hug and our thoughts are with his wife, Cathy, and the Manchester United family", Guardiola said.

Luke Griggs, of the brain injury charity Headway, said a brain haemorrhage can occur spontaneously as a result of a ruptured aneurysm, or from a blow to the head, even a minor head injury.

"The long-term implications are very hard to predict", Headway's Luke Griggs said.

What is a brain haemorrhage?

Edwin van der Sar: Devastated about the news about Sir Alex and knowing all too well about the situation ourselves.
