Former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson underwent an emergency surgery on Saturday for a brain haemorrhage as confirmed by the Old Trafford outfit.

A Manchester United statement said the procedure had gone very well but that their former employee needs a period of intensive care to optimise his recovery.

"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 76-year old retired manager stepped down as United manager in May 2013 after winning 38 trophies during 26 years in charge. He was at Old Trafford last Sunday when he presented Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger with a commemorative trophy.

Ferguson's family have requested privacy as he recovers in Salford Royal Hospital.

The most successful manager in the history of the British game, Ferguson's trophy haul at Old Trafford included 13 Premier League titles, two Champions League crowns, five FA Cups and four League Cups.

Ferguson famously won the Treble of Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League in 1999.

All our thoughts and prayers at FCNaija.com are with him and his family. We wish him a speedy recovery.
