A Manchester United spokesman said, "Sir Alex Ferguson has undergone emergency surgery for a brain haemorrhage".

United confirmed the 76-year-old's situation in a statement on Saturday after reports had begun circulating that he was in intensive care.

"I wish Sir Alex Ferguson a speedy and full recovery", said British Labour MP John McDonnell, the Shadow Chancellor.

People who know him have stressed how much he has been enjoying a varied life among family and friends. Hopefully the surgery was good and can recover as quick as possible to return to his family, wife and kids, and his Manchester United family'.

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.

Well-wishes immediately flooded in after his former club, where he spent more than 26 years in charge, announced the news in a brief statement on Saturday evening.

PM Modi also trained his guns on CM Siddaramaiah for not formulating a comprehensive mining policy during his time in charge. The campaign against the BJP was unfounded as the party had also made a Dalit, Ram Nath Kovind, the country's President.

Many football players, managers, and analysts see him as one of the greatest and most successful managers of all time. "As a personal friend, I hope he has a full recovery".

Since benefitting from United soon after almost 27 years in control in 2013, the 76-year-old Ferguson has lasted to wait matches in Old Trafford, engage in training initiatives, also has turned into a routine in horse-racing as a dominant proprietor.

David Beckham posted a picture on Instagram of him signing a contract as a teenager alongside Ferguson, accompanied by the message: "Keep fighting Boss".

He won three Scottish Premier Division titles, four Scottish Cups, a Scottish League Cup. "Thoughts with all the family".
