Sir Alex Ferguson out of a coma and talking to friends and family, according to unconfirmed reports

Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson suffered a brain haemorrhage and required emergency surgery on Saturday. A press release by the Old Trafford club confirmed that the operation went well, giving a positive outlook. Since then, no news has been released about the 76-year-old with the family wanting the privacy they need to deal with what happened. This did not stop the media from camping outside the Salford Royal Hospital though.

The Daily Mail is reporting that Ferguson has regained consciousness and is showing the ‘promising early signs of recovery’ but remains in intensive care. It has also been suggested the friends and family of the gaffer have told the media that Ferguson has been sitting up and talking to them. It was stated that the surgery went very well and Ferguson’s response to the treatment has given ‘encouragement’ and ‘caution optimism’. It is likely to be a long road to recovery though, which is to be expected.

It has been a sad few days as we try to deal with what has happened to the man we all worship for what he turned Manchester United into from the 6th November 1986 to the day he stepped down from his role, almost five years ago. Nobody wants to hear what happened to Sir Alex Ferguson. That sort of news is devastating. There have been many messages of support for Ferguson from rivals, players from the past and present day, even legends of the game all speaking out in favour of the gaffer, willing him to fully recover.

There have also been negative messages from those on social media who want to garner attention, they really do get everywhere, but ignorance is bliss where people like that are concerned. The world will wait for Ferguson to recover, just like we all wait for these reports to be confirmed by Manchester United, Ferguson’s wife, Cathy or by his children. These reports from newspapers are great if they are true. We are in a period whereby everything we read may not be the truth though, which in this instance if this is speculation, it is disgusting.

Earlier today, two of the current United players, Phil Jones and Michael Carrick both spoke about the news and spoke of their devastation as to what happened to the manager who brought them to the club in 2011 and 2006 respectively. Even Cristiano Ronaldo, the player who himself sees Ferguson as a father figure, who was sold to Real Madrid for £80 million in the summer of 2009 has shown his support for the gaffer, who waited for him and Nani after Portugal won the European Championships in the summer of 2016, saying:

“My thoughts and prayers are with you, my dear friend. Be strong, Boss!”

When the world stops for you and wishes you all the best with your recovery and continues to do so day after day, refreshing social media feeds in the hope of seeing some confirmed news, it shows you how much of an impact you made in the world. Sir Alex Ferguson achieved everything with Manchester United, showed the world that the manager was just as important as the players kicking the ball on the pitch. It also showed that you can be a genius and reach career goals, even if supporters called for you to be sacked after three seasons.

We are all wishing you well, boss. Get well soon.
