Sir Alex Ferguson’s first speech since life-saving operation [VIDEO]

Sir Alex Ferguson has spoken out for the first time since his life-saving operation in May.

The Legendary former Manchester United manager was placed into an induced coma at Salford Royal Hospital on May 5 after suffering a brain haemorrhage.

Ferguson was released in June following the emergency surgery, however, and has now posted a video thanking those that have supported him over the last couple of months.

The 76-year-old, who won 38 trophies during his 26 years in charge of United, also revealed that he would be back attending Old Trafford later this season.

Ferguson in the video posted on Man Utd's official Twitter page said: “Hello. Just a quick message, first of all, to thank the medical staff at Macclesfield, Salford Royal and Alexandra hospitals.

“Believe me, without those people, who gave me such great care, I would not be sitting here today. So thank you from me and my family, thank you very much.

“It's made me feel so humble, as have all the messages I've received from all over the world, wishing me the best. And the good wishes do resonate very, very strongly with me. So thank you for that support you've given me.

“Lastly, I'll be back later in the season to watch the team. In the meantime, all the best to Jose and the players. Thank you very much.”

The famous manager was last seen publicly during the Red Devils' 2-1 win over Arsenal in the latter stages of last season.

Ferguson spent roughly four days in intensive care and has since been recuperating at home.
