Sir Alex Ferguson feared he would never speak again, after the stroke he experienced

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/
