Sir Alex Ferguson Reveals He Cried Over Fears He Would Lose Memory After Suffering Brain Haemorrhage in 2018
In a new trailer for a documentary on the iconic Manchester United manager’s life, Ferguson’s son, Jason makes a 999 call on May 5, 2018 after his father had collapsed.
He was rushed to hospital and had emergency surgery and the documentary, Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In, reveals the fears he had over his memories.
Speaking about that traumatic day, Sir Alex said: “I was crying because I don’t remember a thing.”
Ferguson’s son, Jason, who directed the documentary, said:
“He just put his head in his hands and said ‘Oh, I hope there’s nothing wrong with my memory, there better be nothing wrong with my memory’.
“The he just started telling me these stories.”
The new documentary explores Ferguson’s life and career from growing up in Govan to his early playing days at Queen’s Park and later his boyhood heroes Rangers.
He later moved into a management career where success at Aberdeen earned him a move to Manchester United where he became legendary and retired in 2013 after winning 38 trophies including 13 Premier Leagues.
