  • Sir Alex Ferguson

The Scot had made an appearance at Old Trafford less than a week before falling ill, presenting Wenger with a special gift in recognition of his years of service prior to United's 2-1 win over Arsenal. He looked in ideal shape. "I woke up to hear that Sir Alex Ferguson is in hospital", said Pele.

"We hope to see him recover quickly and our best wishes for this. I trust his strength and optimistic character to get over it, and well".

The former manager of Manchester United, Aberdeen, St Mirren and East Stirlingshire, who has won more trophies than any other British manager, could make a full recovery but the likely prognosis will not be known for weeks, if not months.

That has been the only comment so far from the English club, where Ferguson spent nearly 27 years in charge before retiring in 2013 as the most successful manager in British soccer history.

Ferguson's son, Darren, manages the Doncaster Rovers but was not on the pitch for their League One match Saturday "for family reasons", heightening concerns for Ferguson.

He will be in good shape again, and I'm looking forward to seeing him again'.
