Sir Alex Ferguson has spoken openly about the horrific experience of losing his voice after he suffered a brain hemorrhage.
The legendary former Manchester United coach was rushed to Salford Royal Hospital in May 2018 after a brain hemorrhage. He was in an induced coma before going to intensive care.
After undergoing emergency brain surgery, the 79-year-old was released four days later.
Ferguson has since made a complete recovery from the hemorrhage and has often been seen watching United games from the stands at Old Trafford.
But in a recent Q&A interview at the premiere of the documentary “Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give Up,” he spoke of the dire reality of the situation.
“I lost my voice, I just could not utter a word, and that was horrible – absolutely horrible,” said the Scotsman.
“And everything was going through my mind: will my memory come back? Will I ever speak again? ”
“There were five brain hemorrhages that day. Three died. Two survived. “You know you’re lucky.”
“It was a beautiful day, I remember it. I wondered how many sunny days I would have seen again. “I found it difficult,” Fergi added.
A documentary on the life of Sir Alex Ferguson will be released in May, showing previously unseen footage of the Manchester United legend. /Telegraph/
