Video: Sir Alex Ferguson Shares Nerves Upon Return to Manchester United After Five-Month Absence

Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted he’s nervous to return to Manchester United after a five-month absence from the club.

The legendary former United manager last took in a game in person back in April when his old side beat Arsenal 2-1.

Shortly after that, Ferguson was admitted to hospital for surgery after suffering a brain haemorrhage, leading to serious worries about his health.

But Ferguson is now back on his feet and well on the mend, with today’s attendance at Old Trafford for United’s clash with Wolves seen as a big step in his recovery.

Upon his return, Ferguson spoke to manutd.com and told about his nerves.

He said: “Well, I’m a bit nervous to be honest with you. Tense really.

“I think my last game was Arsenal back in April some time so it’s a long time.

“But it’s great to be back and I just hope we get a win today.”

United are on a three-game winning run so it’s a good time to return to see the team – and Wolves visit as one of the most entertaining teams early on in the English Premier League.

If United are to make up for some poor results to start the campaign then they’ll need to win on Ferguson’s return.

He’ll be honoured by United before kick-off so fans have been asked to be in their seats by 2:45pm.
