I’ve awoken this morning to the news that a legend of the game is seriously ill in hospital.
Sir Alex Ferguson, who won 38 trophies during his 26 years in charge of Manchester United, has undergone emergency surgery for a brain haemorrhage.
From what we can uncover, the operation has gone well but that the Scot needs a period of intensive care to optimise his recovery.
Now, I’ll openly admit that Sir Alex has nothing to do with Chelsea Football Club, but you cannot help but admire what he has achieved in the game.
Sir Alex is now 76-years-of-age but still, at every opportunity, takes time out to watch his beloved Manchester United and, only last Sunday, was on the Old Trafford pitch to honour the fact that it was Arsene Wenger’s last visit to the stadium as the manager of Arsenal.
Here at Vital Chelsea, we’d like to wish Sir Alex a speedy recovery and we hope he’ll be around for a few more years of ‘Fergie-time’.
Get well soon Sir Alex.
