And Liverpool supporter @Corballyred showed that football fans could indeed put rivalries aside, tweeting: "I know Utd are our main rivals but wishing Alex Ferguson a speedy recovery, as much as I hated him for what he achieved at Utd I've nothing but respect for his qualities as a manager, one of the games best managers ever".

In their statement, the club added: "His family request privacy in this matter".

"Every brain injury is unique, as is every individual's recovery", he added.

Sir Alex's operation went "very well", Manchester United said on Saturday. Stay strong and hope together with everyone you recover. "Edwin & Annemarie", said the couple's Twitter post.

The club's Spanish goalkeeper, David De Gea, tweeted two prayer emojis for his former manager.

His statement said: "I was extremely sorry to hear the news about Alex this evening. Thoughts are with the family and close ones".

"Our best wishes to recover very soon".

Manchester United won 13 Premier League titles during his 26 years in charge.

Only six days previously, he had presented Arsenal's Arsene Wenger with a trophy at Old Trafford.

Keep fighting Boss. Sending prayers and love to Cathy (Ferguson's wife) and the whole family.

"He needs a period of intensive care to optimise his recovery".
