Fit Fergie’s back in the old routine

SIR Alex Ferguson walked into the directors’ box with a huge grin on his face, and, almost sheepishly, acknowledged the crowd’s ovation with a wave of the hand.

Sir Alex, who has recovered fully from brain surgery, knows just how much he is loved at Manchester United, and the adulation was here again, lavished on him from all four corners of Old Trafford.

“One of our own”’ said match-day announcer Alan Keegan. “Without question, one of the greatest figures in Manchester United’s 140-year history. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, give the warmest of Old Trafford welcomes to Sir Alex Ferguson”!

It has been a worrying time since Ferguson was taken ill at home in Wilmslow, and many were concerned that he might never be seen again at the club where he enjoyed unprecedented success for more than 25 years.

The former United manager, suited and booted as ever, looked more like his old self as he raised his hands to acknowledge the acclaim.

For all his trophies, this was his finest success, and he revealed in an interview given earlier to MUTV that he had invited the doctors from Macclesfield General and Salford Royal hospitals, who helped save his life.

“’I thought it was the right thing to do,” he said. “It’s really good to be back. It’s been a long journey. but I’m doing what my son and the doctors tell me.”
