Legendary manager Ferguson undergoes surgery for brain haemorrhage

Sir Alex Ferguson with the Premier League trophy

Sir Alex Ferguson, former Manchester United manager, on Saturday underwent an emergency surgery for brain haemorrhage.

Many of Sir Alex's former players and other stars have posted get-well messages for the 76-year-old, who spent nearly 27 years in charge before retiring in 2013 as the most successful manager in British football history.

Guardiola, who revealed he recently went for dinner with Ferguson following this season's Premier League title win, told Sky Sports: "Brian Kidd, who is here now, was with (Sir Alex) for a lot of time".

Manchester City: Everyone at Manchester City wishes Sir Alex Ferguson a full and speedy recovery after his surgery. "Be strong boss", he wrote on Twitter.

Ferguson, 76, retired in May 2013 after winning 38 trophies during a 26-year tenure.

Real Madrid forward and five-times Ballon d'Or victor Cristiano Ronaldo kickstarted his career at United under Ferguson from 2003 to 2009. "Thoughts with all the family".

Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore: "It's obviously a big shock but the most important thing is to wish him well, and his family well, to respect their privacy, and hope that very, very soon he's back to his best".

Aberdeen, the club he managed before his managerial move to England, sent its "thoughts and prayers" as did Tottenham Hotspur.

Arch rivals Manchester City were quick to tweet: "Everyone at Manchester City wishes Sir Alex Ferguson a full and speedy recovery after his surgery".

Ferguson was at Old Trafford last Sunday when he presented departing Arsenal boss Wenger with a commemorative trophy.

"I met Sir Alex after the first game against Roma [in the Champions League semifinals]", Klopp said after his side's 1-0 defeat at Chelsea.

"Gutted to hear the news tonight about Sir Alex", tweeted United defender Ashley Young.

Ronaldo who is expected to play a key role in the Clasico said: "My thoughts and prayers are with you my dear friend". Headway, the brain injury association, said a hemorrhage can be the result of a ruptured aneurysm or a blow to the head, including a minor injury.

He added: "It can be extremely serious and require urgent medical intervention, however the long-term implications are very hard to predict".

He said: "Devastated about the news about Sir Alex and knowing all too well about the situation ourselves".

"We don't know exactly what kind of brain haemorrhage he had".
