Sir Alex Ferguson, the former director, and manager of Manchester United football club was hospitalized for emergency due to a brain hemorrhage, which was already operated, as reported by the `Red Devils` through a statement.
"Sir Alex Ferguson has undergone emergency surgery for a cerebral hemorrhage, the medical procedure has gone well but needs a period of intensive care to aid his recovery. His family request privacy in this matter. Everyone at Manchester United sends very best wishes." the letter reads.
Also, Darren Ferguson, son of the 76-year-old coach, did not attend the Doncaster game (the club he runs) for "family reasons", of which no further details were given.
The last time Sir Alex was seen in public was at the tribute of Arsenal quarterback Arsene Wenger at Old Trafford. Ferguson attended the match with a present from the club, along with the current boss, José Mourinho.
He was named "Coach of the Year" on more occasions than any other coach in history. In 1999 he became the only coach to win the Premier League, the FA Cup, and the UEFA Champions League in the same year with a British team.
He is a member of the English Football Hall of Fame and Commander of the British Empire (CBE), an honor granted him by Queen Elizabeth II in 1999.
