Ex-man u coach ferguson in intensive care after brain surgery shoulder surgery recovery timeline

Sir Alex Ferguson has undergone emergency surgery today for a brain hemorrhage, United said in a statement. The procedure has gone very well but he needs a period of intensive care to optimize his recovery. His family request privacy in this matter.

The most successful manager in British football history, Ferguson has appeared in good health since ending his intense direct involvement in coaching. The Scot had surgery to fit a pacemaker in 2004 after a heart irregularity was discovered and had a hip operation five years ago shortly after retiring from United.

Since leaving the dugout, Ferguson has traveled the world passing on his vast football knowledge to a new generation of coaches and fans through books and talks, including at Harvard University, on how he won 49 honors in his career including 38 titles at United.


Starting work as a teenager in a Glasgow shipyard instilled a socialist ethos that the former Glasgow Rangers player carried throughout a career that included a spell coaching Scotland at the 1986 World Cup and eventually saw him knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.

Beckham broke into the team in the 1990s as Ferguson turned United into the country’s most successful club. Hired from Aberdeen in 1986, Ferguson held onto his United job despite taking until 1993 to end the club’s title drought. Ferguson retired a champion in 2013, lifting the Premier League trophy for a 13th time to take the club’s haul of English championship crowns to a record 20.

It is just a week since Ferguson was on the Old Trafford pitch paying tribute to long-time managerial adversary Arsene Wenger. The Frenchman, whose control of Arsenal was reminiscent of Ferguson’s at United, is preparing to leave the London club after 22 years as manager.
