Former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson, who used to watch every home game of United before his sickness has finally made an return to Old Trafford to watch Premier League game against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Sir Alex Ferguson watched the Premier League game between United and Wolverhampton.

Ferguson was admitted  to the Salford Royal Hospital in May for emergency surgery for a brain hemorrhage. After getting released from the hospital, he has been in bed rest since then. But he was greeted with applause and cheers from the crowd after he  attended his first match since the operation.

However, he spent a disappointing night at Old Trafford as United drew 1-1 with Wolves.

After making an emotional return, Ferguson told MUTV:

“It’s obviously been a long journey. But I’m making steps forward, doing what my son tells me and what the doctors tell me, so, yeah, it’s really good. I’m a bit nervous, to be honest with you, maybe a bit tense, really, because the last game was Arsenal back in April. It was a long time, but it’s great to be back, and I just hope we get a win today.”

When asked if he misses the press conferences he used to face during his managerial career, the former United managed said:

“I don’t miss this. This is the pressure, having these press guys with stupid questions. No, it’s great to go back to the stadium, and it’s going to be quite emotional for me when the game starts, things like that. It had to happen sometime, and I’ve been looking forward to it. It was important getting the right time and the right rest before coming to a game.”

Ferguson also thanked his supporters and well wishes and all the things they did during his recovery phase.

“It’s unbelievable. There were thousands of cards, and they kept arriving at Salford Royal Hospital. I’d left by that time, but they kept coming and kept coming. The number of emails, texts and personal cards to the house, it was just amazing. It really was. I’m overcome by it and overwhelmed by it. I think, if you remember, I did the message [through MUTV] to thank the people who had taken the time to send me messages. It’s great to be back!”

Ferguson was in charge at United for 808 Premier League games and 1,400 matches in all competitions. He lifted 38 trophies including three Premier League titles, five FA Cups and two Champions League titles.
