Wishing Sir Alex Ferguson a full and speedy recovery

Editor's Viewpoint

Sir Alex Ferguson remains simply the greatest manager in English football winning an astonishing 38 trophies during his 26 years in charge at Manchester United. But he was not someone who simply bathed in the glory of his achievements. He realised football reached down to the very grassroots of communities and brought his fledgling players on many occasions to Northern Ireland to play in tournaments.

He was also a staunch supporter of various charities and fittingly now as he lies in hospital after surgery following a brain bleed, a torrent of good wishes has been sent his way from far and wide. We, like his fans, wish him a full recovery.
