Alex Ferguson, the most successful manager in Manchester United's history, underwent emergency surgery on Saturday for a brain hemorrhage, the club said.

United's club captain, Michael Carrick, also said he was "devastated" to learn his former manager had needed emergency surgery. "Be strong boss", he posted on Twitter.

Ferguson stepped away from management just as neighbor Manchester City, which posed little threat until a 2008 takeover by oil-rich Abu Dhabi, became the English team with the biggest spending power.

Sir Alex Ferguson is now in intensive care and fighting for his life after suffering a brain haemorrhage. "If anyone can pull through this it will be the man himself".

Ferguson can claim to have done it all, from winning in Europe with an unfashionable smaller club, lifting league titles in two different countries, collecting European silverware with two clubs and annexing trophies in four successive decades.

"All our thoughts are with Lady Cathy and the rest of Sir Alex's family at this hard time".

The Red Devils' rivals Manchester City said they wished Sir Alex a quick recovery, adding the hashtag #footballfamily.

In addition, he helped to made houses names of just two of those match's most significant celebrities: David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo.

In the fickle modern game, which treats managers as disposable tissues, Ferguson was immovable Glaswegian granite for more than quarter of a century, re-establishing and then constantly re-inventing United's dazzle as the world's most celebrated club.
