Ferguson 'emotional' in return to Old Trafford

Alex Ferguson and Paul Scholes

Sir Alex Ferguson was greeted by rapturous applause when he made his long-awaited return to Old Trafford following a period of health issues.

Doctors told him he was extremely lucky to be alive, but after several months recuperating at home in Wilmslow, Cheshire, the 76-year-old has made it out to watch United take on Wolves today.

"My last game was against SArsenal, back in April I think, so it's a long time", Ferguson told MUTV.

The Scot arrived 15 minutes ahead of kick-off in United's Premier League clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers and received the kind of ovation that is typically reserved for the late winners with which he has become synonymous.

'I don't miss this!

"It's bound to be emotional, particularly when I take my seat in the box. I'll be glad when the game starts and I can enjoy it".

Ferguson was among the many speakers who thanked the ex-England man for his services.

Sir Alex is, of course, renowned for bringing the club an unprecedented level of success for over two decades - success they have had a hard time replicating in the years that followed his retirement. The number of emails, texts and personal cards to the house, it was just fantastic.

"Thank you from me and my family, thank you very much".

It certainly is good to have the old gaffer back! It was really important to do that.

"Some of the doctors are here (as special guests) who did the operation and I thought it was the right thing to do". It's great to be back!'

United are seeking a fourth successive competitive victory following wins over Burnley and Watford in the Premier League, and Young Boys in the Champions League in midweek. A statue of the iconic figure is also outside the ground and few could argue there are more legendary figures in football, let alone at United.
