Ex Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson aged 76 sent a video message today the first time he has been seen publicly to all those hospital staff who helped save his life and to everyone who sent him get well messages.
Ferguson suffered a brain haemorrhage and needed emergency treatment, this was successful and is looking well after a period of much-needed rest.
Ferguson said in his short video: “Hello. Just a quick message, first of all to thank the medical staff at Macclesfield, Salford Royal and Alexandra hospitals.
”Believe me, without those people, who gave me such great care, I would not be sitting here today. So thank you from me and my family, thank you very much.
“It’s made me feel so humble, as have all the messages I’ve received from all over the world, wishing me the best. And the good wishes do resonate very, very strongly with me. So thank you for that support you’ve given me.
”Lastly, I’ll be back later in the season to watch the team. In the meantime, all the best to Jose and the players. Thank you very much.
We’re all looking forward to seeing you back in your seat at Old Trafford very soon, Sir Alex.
