The news of former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s emergency surgery for an internal haemorrhage rocked the footballing community last night.
Fans and critics across the world laid aside their rivalries as they sent best wishes for his speedy recovery. It goes without saying that Sir Alex is one of the most legendary managers to have ever set foot in the Premier League.
Manchester United were a force to reckon with across Europe under his guidance and suffice to say, it will be a while before they can find anybody who is half as great as him.
Of course, losing to a side like that always left a bitter taste in most of our mouths but nothing can deny his influence and impact on English football, in general.
It was great to see Tottenham’s official Twitter account put out a tweet to wish him a quick recovery.
