United said in a statement on Saturday that Ferguson's surgery had gone "extremely well", but that he would need a period of intensive care to aid his recovery.

Ashley Young has spoken of his devastation at hearing the news of Sir Alex Ferguson's emergency brain operation and is praying his former Manchester United manager makes a full recovery.

Giggs was one of "Fergie's Fledglings", along with David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt as well as the Neville brothers Gary and Phil, who were in the United team that won numerous trophies under Ferguson, including the 1999 treble.

"(I am) just devastated, absolutely devastated", Jones said.

"He is such a legend in my eyes".

Information that Ferguson, one of many sport's biggest ever managers, had been taken sick plunged the world of soccer into shock on Saturday evening.

"It's sad, but I know his character and I know he has that fight in him". Hopefully, he'll recover well.

In addition, USA Today mentions Kim agreed to change the clocks in the North by a half hour to match the time zone in the South. On the possible release of three American detainees in the North , the White House official said he has "nothing to announce".

United thanked the many well-wishers, including the likes of rival managers Arsene Wenger, Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp, who spoke of their admiration for Ferguson.

"We wish him very well and that he recovers very, very quickly". He misread the difference between Everton and Manchester United, which is like going from a yacht to a cruise ship. "He told me he's doing a lot of exercise, he looked very happy".

Wenger, who is leaving the Gunners at the end of the season, described Ferguson as "an optimistic man" with Guardiola saying his thoughts were with Ferguson's wife Cathy and the rest of his family, including his son Darren, who is now in charge of Doncaster Rovers.

"I've never been coached by him, unfortunately, yet I know well his incomparable legacy on this club".

That request has been widely followed and it has been left to the men that played for and against him, as well as managers and football fans, to pay their own dues. "I've got mad respect for him".

Wenger and Ferguson greet each other ahead of one of their many clashes.

"I just have good memories of him, he was like a second dad and I was crying yesterday when I heard the news".
