FORMER Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson is no longer in intensive care, the club has revealed.
Ferguson underwent emergency surgery for a brain haemorrhage on Saturday.
The procedure went well and Ferguson, 76, has been recovering at Salford Royal Hospital in Manchester.
A statement from the club this evening confirmed he no longer needs intensive care and will continue rehabilitation as an inpatient at the hospital.
“His family have been overwhelmed by the level of support and good wishes but continue to request privacy as this will be vital during this next stage of recovery,” added the statement.
During his 27 years at Old Trafford, Ferguson won 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups, four League Cups and the Champions League on two occasions.
He also won three Scottish titles with Aberdeen, the last side to win the Scottish top flight outside Celtic and Rangers, as well as four Scottish Cups and a Scottish League Cup.
