Sir Alex Ferguson is hospitalized with brain hemorrhage

"Everyone at Manchester City wishes Sir Alex Ferguson a full and speedy recovery after his surgery #footballfamily" said the club, while Arsenal offered words of camaraderie, having seen Ferguson help give long-serving manager Arsene Wenger a fitting send-off at Old Trafford. The procedure has gone very well but he needs a period of intensive care to aid recovery.

An ambulance was reportedly called to his Cheshire home at 9am yesterday, before he was taken to Macclesfield District Hospital.

A statement from the League One club said: "Darren asks for privacy, and will provide an update through the club during the week".

Jimmy Bullard said Ferguson would beat the condition the way he had beaten opposing sides throughout his career.

Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore is not surprised by the amount of well wishes Ferguson is receiving.

The Scot had surgery to fit a pacemaker in 2004 after a heart irregularity was discovered and had a hip operation five years ago shortly after retiring from United. I was hoping it wasn't true. "Well, absolutely, I only just got a little whisper of that earlier on and I was hoping it wasn't true and I wish him all the best", Said Hughes.

Former United player Diego Forlan, who signed to the club during Ferguson's reign in 2002, was one of the latest to pass on his prayers as he tweeted a photo of himself and Ferguson holding a United shirt. "Be strong Boss", he wrote.

"All my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family".

Portuguese and Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo also reached out on social media.

He then went on to share a joke together with his former gamers whereas talking about his final ever sport as United boss - a 5-5 draw towards West Brom wherein Romelu Lukaku, then on mortgage with the Baggies from Chelsea, scored a hat-trick.

"All my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family".

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

Edwin van der Sar: Devastated about the news about Sir Alex and knowing all too well about the situation ourselves. "Edwin & Annemarie", said the couple's Twitter post.

Peter Schmeichel: Please. Be strong.

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. "Thoughts with all the family".

Ferguson enjoyed incredible success with the Red Devils, winning 38 trophies in 26-and-a-half years in charge before retiring in May 2013.

In 2001 he made a decision to leave the following year but was persuaded by his family to change his mind and stayed on until 2013.

Ferguson stepped down because he felt it unfair to his wife to continue in a job which obsessed him and swallowed up his time, especially after she lost her sister Bridget in the autumn of 2012.

In their most famous victory, United scored twice in injury time to beat Bayern Munich 2-1 in Barcelona and win the Champions League, prompting Ferguson to exclaim: "Football, bloody hell!"
