Sir Alex Ferguson is currently in a serious condition at the Salford Royal Hospital following a brain haemorrhage which sent him straight to the ICU.
The 76-year-old former Manchester United manager underwent emergency surgery after he was rushed by ambulance from his home in Wilmslow, Cheshire on Saturday.
He was taken first to Macclesfield district hospital and then to Salford hospital under a police escort. His family, including his wife Cathy and his son Darren, also a football manager, were understood to be at his bedside.
Neither the club nor the hospital provided an update on his condition on Sunday which United had previously said would require intensive care.
According to The Guardian, the club Ferguson managed for almost 27 years until retiring in 2013 said on Saturday: “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.”
It 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.”
