Watch: Sir Alex Ferguson makes return to Old Trafford


Sir Alex Ferguson made his return to Old Trafford, after being taken ill this earlier year – and the footage is utterly spine-tingling. 

The side’s most successful manager presided over United’s best years.

He was appointed as manager of the Red Devils in 1986 and led the side to 38 trophies, including 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups, and two UEFA Champions League titles.

He has built a strong emotional connection with the fanbase, as was clear from this video of his return to Man United’s ground, before the team’s Premier League encounter against Wolves.
