  • Alex Ferguson won his final Premier League title with Manchester United in 2013

A day after former manager Alex Ferguson underwent emergency surgery for a brain hemorrhage, Manchester United tweeted Sunday: "Please".

Najib posted a twitter message wishing quick recovery for the 76 year old.

Sir Alex is a great, inspiring man and we hope he continues to be just that for a long time to come.

Social media continued to be awash with tributes and get-well messages for Ferguson, who spent nearly 27 years in charge before retiring in 2013 as the most successful manager in British football history.

"All the Manchester City fans in the stadium, you can not find one person who does not wish the best for an unbelievable person", said City manager Pep Guardiola on the day City lifted the Premier League trophy.

Over in north London, and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger - who took charge of his final home game as Gunners boss - said: "I was with him on the pitch last week. I went to see him in the box after the game and he looked in a flawless shape", said Wenger, who also started his farewell speech in his final home game as Arsenal boss at the Emirates on Sunday with well wishes for Ferguson. They see in him a father figure, strict but with their best interests at heart. He's a strong man. "He is absolutely the boss", said Liverpool boss Klopp.

"When I heard it yesterday on the way to London, I really couldn't believe it".

"I can't thank him enough, the opportunity he gave me, I'm forever indebted to him".

Conte said his Saturday had been badly affected by the news having had the chance to meet Ferguson personally.

'I've never been coached by him, unfortunately, yet I know well his incomparable legacy on this club, that winning mentality and fighting gen that we must honour in the last three games of the season, especially in the FA Cup final, ' said Mata. I understand that this is a special person. He's not a normal person or a manager that he won many, many titles in his career. "We wish him all the love in the world, a healthy speedy recovery and God bless to him". We wish him - and those who love him - all the strength they need during this hard time.
