Ferguson, who is widely cited to be one of the greatest managers of all time in football due to his extraordinary with United, was reported to have collapsed at his home on Saturday and was taken to the Macclesfield district hospital at around 9 AM local time. He was then shifted to another hospital in Salford where he had the operation. The news of his hospitalisation had triggered an outpouring of well wishes from clubs, current and contemporary managers and officials.

United said in its statement that Ferguson’s family was “overwhelmed by the level of support and good wishes but continue to request privacy as this will be vital during this next stage of recovery.”

Ferguson had made a televised appearance just a week before news of his operation came out when he presented long-time rival and outgoing Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger with a memento alongwith current United Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford before a Premier League match between the two sides. A few days, Wenger started his farewell speech at the Emirates stadium by wishing a speedy recovery for Ferguson.
