Watch: I'll be back at Old Trafford this season, says Sir Alex Ferguson after brain surgery

Sir Alex Ferguson has issued a message thanking hospital staff and supporters as he vowed to return to Old Trafford soon.

The legendary former Manchester United manager was rushed to hospital following a brain haemorrhage in May before undergoing surgery.

In a message published on the club's Twitter account, Ferguson paid tribute to those who aided his recovery.

He said: "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. Thyank-you very much from me and my family.

"It has made me feel so humble, as have all the messages from all over the world. The good wishes resonate with me very, very strongly so thank you for that support.

"Lastly, I'll be back later in the season to watch the team. In the mean time, all the best to Jose and the players."

Sir Alex was manager of Manchester United between 1986 and 2013, winning 13 Premier League titles and two Champions League titles.
