Manchester United says former manager Sir Alex Ferguson has undergone emergency surgery for a brain hemorrhage.

The English Premier League club says "the procedure has gone very well but he needs a period of intensive care to optimize his recovery. His family request privacy in this matter."

The 76-year-old Ferguson retired from managing United in 2013 after 26 years in charge.
