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

Sir Alex Ferguson Manchester United 2018-19

Speaking in the video released in July , Ferguson said: "Believe me, without those people, who gave me such great care, I would not be sitting here today". This is the pressure, having these press guys with stupid questions.

"It's going to be a bit emotional for me when the game gets started and things like that", the Scot told MUTV. It was important getting the right time and the right rest before coming to a game.

"It's bound to be emotional". That will be something, you know.

"Paul enjoy the night, sorry I'm not there to enjoy the celebration, well done for a fantastic career and being a great human being". He said he was taking some of the doctors who treated him as special guests.

'It's unbelievable, ' he added, 'there were thousands of cards and they kept arriving at Salford Royal Hospital.

United grew in confidence after scoring and it required an acrobatic diving save by Rui Patricio deep in first half injury-time to deny Fred a second goal, this from a left-foot free-kick.

"The number of emails and texts and personal cards to the house, it really was incredible".


'I'm overcome by it and overwhelmed by it. It was really important to do that. And some of the doctors who did the operation are here too - I thought it was the right thing to do.

This was the real story of the day: United's greatest ever manager, four months after a life-threatening affliction, back smiling and pumping his fists at Old Trafford. The good wishes do resonate very, very strongly with me, so thank you for that support you've given me.

The picture's caption read: "Welcome back to Old Trafford, Sir Alex".

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.

"Lastly, I'll be back later in the season to watch the team".

"Fortunately he did and he became the player we all saw".
