Ferguson suffers brain haemorrhage, undergoes emergency surgery

Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has undergone emergency surgery after suffering a brain haemorrhage on Saturday.

The 76-year-old was rushed to hospital around 9am this morning after complaining of his health since Thursday.

“Sir Alex Ferguson has undergone emergency surgery today (Saturday) for a brain haemorrhage,” read a statement released by Manchester United.

“The procedure has gone very well but he needs a period of intensive care to optimise his recovery. His family request privacy in this matter.”

Ferguson’s son Darren was absent from Doncaster Rovers’s final game of the League One season this evening due to the serious family issue.

Ferguson stepped down as Manchester United manager five years ago after 27 years in the saddle. He led the Red Devils to 13 Premier League titles and two Champions Leagues.

The Scot was seen publicly during last Sunday’s Premier League match between United and Arsenal, where he presented Arsene Wenger with a gift to mark his final visit to Old Trafford.
