He then received a police escort to rush him to another hospital in Salford where he was operated on.

United issued a statement on Saturday saying the procedure had gone well, but Ferguson would need a “period of intensive care to optimise his recovery”.

Arsene Wenger and Pep Guardiola, two leading Premier League managers, expressed their delight at hearing that Ferguson was out of intensive care.

Wenger, the Arsenal manager who was Ferguson’s great rival for years, said: “It’s fantastic news. He has worked very hard and deserves a long period of enjoying life. I hope he’s back soon and in good shape.”

Guardiola, manager of United’s neighbours Manchester City who won the Premier League this season, added: “Sir Alex Ferguson, we are so happy he is out of intensive care today.”

He is the most successful manager of Manchester United having won the Premier League Title 13 times in his tenure of 26 years in charge from 1986-2013.
