Football world rallies around Sir Alex Ferguson
Manchester United players, both past and present, have sent their best wishes to Sir Alex Ferguson who is seriously ill in hospital. The former United coach has undergone surgery for a brain haemorrhage, which the club say has gone well. He remains in intensive care. Ferguson, a former Rangers striker, won three Scottish championships, four Scottish Cups and the 1983 European Cup Winners’ Cup in charge of the Dons. It was a similar story at Old Trafford, where his United teams ended Liverpool’s dominance of the domestic game, with the highlight of Ferguson’s time in charge a 1999 treble of Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup titles all in the one season.
