'Great to be back' - Ferguson makes Old Trafford return

Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson returned to his old stomping ground at Old Trafford today, his first visit since suffering from a brain hemorrhage earlier this year.

Manchester United's Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho gestures on the touchline during the English Premier League football match between Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford in Manchester, north west England, on 22 September 2018.

"Just a quick message, first of all, to thank the medical staff at Macclesfield, Salford Royal and Alexandra Hospitals", Ferguson said.

" I'm a bit nervous. because the last game was Arsenal back in April. It was a long time but it's great to be back".

During his time at Old Trafford, he won 13 Premier League titles, two Champions League crowns, five FA Cups and four League Cups.

Speaking about his return and current health, Ferguson told MUTV : "I'm really good".

Sir Alex is watching Manchester United play against Wolves from his usual seat in the directors' box this afternoon. "They started better, were more aggressive, had more intent, and I don't know why, but they were more motivated".

But Ferguson has made his long-awaited return to the Theatre of Dreams to support United in their meeting with Wolves today. This is the press room where I used to hammer these press guys when they ask their stupid questions! The number of emails, texts, and personal cards that came to the house, it was just wonderful. "I was overcome by it".

"Some of the doctors are here (as special guests) who did the operation and I thought it was the right thing to do".

It sure is great to see the footballing legend back on his feet.

The club's post featuring the picture of Ferguson was retweeted by United coach and former midfielder Michael Carrick, who added an emoji of hands raised in celebration.

United are favourites to clinch the tie on their home turf, especially after winning their last three games in all competitions, but the Premier League newcomers will not go down easily.

The message received an understandably warm reception from hundreds of United fans at Old Trafford's Manchester Suite who were at the event which had been organised by the Association of Former Manchester United Players.
