Video: Manchester United Fans Give Sir Alex Ferguson Awesome Ovation

Manchester United fans gave Sir Alex Ferguson an awesome ovation as he took his seat at Old Trafford today.

The legendary Scottish manager made his return to the home of the Red Devils this afternoon for the first time since undergoing surgery on a brain haemorrhage back in May.

At the time, there were real worries about his health and it would have been more of a hope than expectation that he’d return to the stands at Old Trafford.

But thankfully Ferguson is well on the road to recovery and returned to Old Trafford this afternoon for the first time.

United confirmed they’d honour Ferguson before kick-off so thousands of fans were in their seats early to give him a big welcome back:

That’s a great ovation for Ferguson ahead of United against Wolves in the English Premier League.

Ferguson will be hoping United win on his return and continue a three-game wining run.
