  • Here are all the messages from Man United players to Alex Ferguson

However, they later became friends and Ferguson presented Wenger with a momento on behalf of United on his last visit to Old Trafford as Arsenal manager just last weekend.

"Manchester United would like to thank the wider football world for the messages of support following the news that Sir Alex Ferguson underwent emergency surgery on Saturday evening".

A United statement said the procedure "had gone very well" but there is no update on the 76-year-old's condition. Ferguson's family have requested privacy as he recovers in Salford Royal Hospital.

Former Arsenal stars Thierry Henry and Robin Van Persie - who played under Sir Alex in his final season - wished him a speedy recovery, as did former footballer and pundit Gary Lineker.

Sunday saw runaway winners Manchester City, United's local rivals, receive the Premier League trophy as Guardiola added an English title to the Spanish and German ones he won in charge of Barcelona and Bayern Munich respectively.

Manchester City coach Brian Kidd, who served as Ferguson's number two at United between 1991 and 1998, said his former boss was in this thoughts and prayers.

"Devastated about the news about Sir Alex and knowing all too well about the situation ourselves", he wrote.

His family, including his wife Cathy and his son Darren, are at his bedside.

Everyone was shocked when the news came out and everyone is still hoping the United icon will be able to pull through by showing the fighting spirit everyone has associated with him once more. What he did for Manchester United, it's unreal.

"I wish him the best".

"He's probably the most iconic figure of football from the last 30 years, and then when you add that to the fact that he's such a important role model to so many people around the world, he's captured the world". Here's to hoping for a full and speedy recovery.

"Get well soon Sir Alex Ferguson".

Born into a family of shipyard workers in the Govan area of Glasgow, Sir Alex has been a well-known Labour supporter and has been named in the past as one of the party's biggest donors.

He added that it can be "extremely serious and require urgent medical intervention" and that the long-term implications are hard to predict. "Every brain injury is unique, as is every individual's recovery".
