  • Sir Alex Ferguson with the Premier League trophy

Romelu Lukaku: Thoughts and prayers are with Sir Alex Ferguson and his family!

Ferguson underwent emergency brain surgery on Saturday.

A United statement said the procedure "had gone very well" but there is no update on the 76-year-old's condition. "His family request privacy".

When it emerged Sir Alex was in hospital, football fans - including names from the worlds of sport, politics and television - set allegiances aside to unite in sending their best wishes to one the game's greats.

An ambulance was reportedly called to his Cheshire mansion at 9am (on Saturday) before taking him to Macclesfield district hospital.

"I went to see him in the box after the game on Sunday". Here's hoping and praying you make a full recovery/comeback from this one too.

Glasgow-born Ferguson is one of the most successful managers in the game.

"I had a few words with them. Everyone at Manchester United sends our very best wishes".

His former colleague David Beckham, who had a sometimes tempestuous relationship with Ferguson, said on Instagram: "Keep fighting Boss".


Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola also sent his close friend his well wishes, revealing Ferguson had recently taken him out for dinner to congratulate him on winning the Premier League title with City. All my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family. Be strong boss, ' wrote Carrick. Thoughts with all the family.

He said: "Every brain injury is unique, as is every individual's recovery".

Warm wishes have flooded in for Sir Alex Ferguson, who is in intensive care after suffering a brain haemorrhage. Stay strong and hope together with everyone you recover.

In a tweet on Sunday night, Manchester United thanked the "wider football world" for their messages of support.

In a statement on Liverpool's website, a spokesperson said Sir Alex was "a great rival but also a great friend".

Former Manchester United man and current Manchester City coach Brian Kidd has lauded Sir Alex Ferguson for what he did at Old Trafford.

During his 26 years with Manchester United he won 38 trophies, including 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups, and two UEFA Champions League titles.

He was at United's home ground a week ago to present a commemorative vase to old rival Arsene Wenger, who is stepping down as Arsenal manager. His son and wife, Cathy, were with him, the Guardian reported.

The ex-Red Devils boss is seriously ill and is now in intensive care.
