Sir Alex Ferguson’s son has thanked fans for their support as the Manchester United legend continues his recovery from a brain haemorrahage.
Ferguson was rushed to hospital last Friday and spent several days in intensive care after suffering from a brain hemorrhage.
And now, Ferguson’s son and Doncaster Rovers boss Darren Ferguson who was forced to miss last weekend’s game has issued a statement in which he acknowledged the “overwhelming” response from the football community and beyond.
According to Mirror sport, he said: “On behalf of myself and my family, I would like to thank the huge number of people who have been kind enough to send messages of support during a difficult time.
“It has been overwhelming to read how many people care and that they are thinking of my dad and willing his recovery.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the staff at Macclesfield Hospital and at the Salford Royal who have been truly magnificent. We continue to request privacy during this vital period of recovery.”
On Wednesday, United confirmed that Ferguson was out of intensive care.
Their statement read: “Sir Alex no longer needs intensive care and will continue rehabilitation as an inpatient.
“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.”
