Fans react on Twitter as Sir Alex Ferguson returns to Old Trafford

Sir Alex Ferguson would for the first time since his surgery be watching his former side play against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Old Trafford today. His return was met with the warm welcome of many stars and fans. United sit eighth in the Premier League standings while the Wolves are just a spot behind them. A great and exciting game would surely ensue between both sides.

In early May this year, the former United coach received emergency surgery after he suffered a brain hemorrhage. Many had prayed for his health. Fast forward to four months later, Ferguson made a public appearance at Old Trafford to witness Jose Mourinho’s side play.

The former the Red Devils is one of the most highly regarded managers in the world. He led the club to great heights and glory. Before falling ill, the 76-year-old last appeared at Old Trafford alongside former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger. Both managers had met on multiple occasions as the managers of their respective clubs. However, the two distinguished men have since left their positions as the Premier League club managers.

Upon his return to the Theatre of Dreams, Sir Ferguson will be honored by the club. Manchester United has urged their fans to be seated early in order for the ceremony to start on time. Many former players and fans are simply thrilled to see the former Scottish footballer back at the stadium and looking fully recovered from his illness. See some reactions from Twitter to the news.

Sir Alex Ferguson: “I am really good, obviously it has been a long journey. Yeah, I’m really good. Well, I’m a bit nervous to be honest with you, a bit tense, my last game was Arsenal back in April. It’s a long time, but it’s great to be back and I hope we get a win today.” #MUFC
