Ferguson undergoes emergency surgery after brain haemorrhage, seriously ill

Sir Alex Fugerson

Sir Alex Ferguson has been rushed to hospital where he has undergone emergency surgery for a brain haemorrhage, Manchester United have confirmed.

The legendary Red Devils boss, 76, was taken to Salford Royal Hospital, with a police escort, after he was initially taken to Macclesfield district hospital.

Manchester United released the following statement today at 8pm: “Sir Alex Ferguson has undergone emergency surgery today for a brain haemorrhage. 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.”

The club later added: “We will keep Sir Alex and his loved ones in our thoughts during this time, and we are united in our wish to see him make a comfortable, speedy recovery.”

Ferguson’s son Darren Ferguson was forced to miss Doncaster’s final game of the season against Wigan as news emerged of the severe family issue.

A statement from the Yorkshire club read: “Rovers manager Darren Ferguson will not be at Saturday’s game due to family reasons. Gavin Strachan will oversee the final game of the Sky Bet League One season in the manager’s absence.

“Darren asks for privacy, and will provide an update through the club during the week.”
