Sir Alex Ferguson was admitted to hospital on Friday night and has undergone brain surgery.
The legendary Manchester United manager was in attendance at Old Trafford last Sunday and even presented Arsene Wenger with a commemorative vase, following his decision to call it quit at Arsenal at the end of the season.
‘Sir Alex Ferguson has undergone emergency surgery today for a brain hemorrhage,’ read a statement from Manchester United.
‘The procedure has gone very well but he needs a period of intensive care to optimise his recovery.
‘His family request privacy in this matter.’
Ferguson’s son Darrren, manager of Doncaster, was absent from his team’s final game of the season, due to ‘a severe family issue’.
