Sir Alex Ferguson with the Premier League trophy

"I send him my encouragement and those of all the people who accompany me". "I trust his strength and optimistic character to get over it, and well".

Addressing the crowd after his final home game in charge, Wenger sent his best wishes to his long-time rival. A manager who won many titles in his career.

Neither the club nor the hospital provided an update on his condition on Sunday, which United had previously said would require intensive care.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has wished former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson a speedy recovery after he underwent emergency surgery for a brain haemorrhage on Saturday.

Glasgow-born Ferguson is one of the most successful managers in the game.

"He's such an iconic person as everybody knows".

Others also pointed to Sir Alex's infamous ability to put up a good fight as they voiced their hopes he would pull through.
