Sir Alex Ferguson gets tribute from Pep Guardiola and Arsene Wenger

Darren Ferguson missed Doncaster's final game

When Ferguson retired in 2013, he was the most successful manager in British football.

Ferguson had appeared fit and well when he presented his old sparring partner Arsene Wenger with a memento at Old Trafford last Sunday ahead of the Frenchman's departure from Arsenal. "He told me he's doing a lot of exercise, he looked very happy".

"We wish him very well and that he recovers very, very quickly. He is a strong man and an optimistic man".

Accompanying the picture, McGrath wrote: "Just heard about Sir Alex, my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

Our best wishes to recover very soon".

Kidd said: "He's such an iconic person".

"You really think Sir Alex is indestructible".

"I wish him the best".

He said: "Boss, I learn with you to win whatever happens, so now I demand you: win, win, win, win".

'He is not a normal person.

But rumours began to circulate about the 76-year-old's health after Doncaster manager Darren Ferguson, Alex's son, did not attend his side's final match of the League One season against Wigan Athletic because of what was reported as a "severe family issue".

News of Ferguson's operation was made public by a United statement issued Saturday.

Ferguson's former club Rangers FC tweeted: "Everyone at #RangersFC sends their best wishes to Sir Alex Ferguson following emergency surgery".

The procedure is said to have gone very well, with Sir Alex needing a period of intensive care to optimise his recovery. His family requests privacy in this matter.

According to Luke Griggs, of the brain injury charity Headway, brain haemorrhages can sometimes happen spontaneously as a result of a ruptured aneurysm, otherwise known as a haemorrhagic stroke.

Sky Sports News reporter James Cooper has been at the Manchester hospital throughout Sunday but he is not expecting an update on Ferguson's condition in the short-term.

Beckham was part of the famous "Fergie's Fledglings" group, along with Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and brothers Gary and Phil Neville, that led United to numerous trophies from the mid-1990s, including the historic 1999 treble.

"The greatest manager I've ever seen". "Met Alex Ferguson, our new boss at the time, at K stand by his Jaguar".

Golfer Ian Poulter shared a photograph on his Twitter page of him sitting side-by-side with Sir Alex.

"Having been recently impacted by a brain hemorrhage in our own family, we know the dramatic impact it causes, and the strength that can be drawn from those who care".
