- Ferguson underwent a life-saving brain surgery back in May 2018
- The former Manchester United was rushed to hospital for the surgery after a seizure at his home
- He has now raised £400,000 for the National Hospital Service as appreciation
Former Manchester United boss, Sir Alex Ferguson, has shown gratitude to the staff at Salford Royal Hospital after the life-changing brain surgery he underwent back in May 2018.
The emergency treatment saw the Scottish tactician forced him to spend several days in intensive care at the hospital.
Ferguson hosted a star-studded charity event at a hotel in Manchester, raising a staggering KSh 53 million (£400,000) for the National Hospital Services.
A source who spoke to SunSport disclosed the legendary United manager was full of life during the event and was keen to have all the proceeds raised from the charity channeled to NHS.
"Alex was in great form all night and had guests in stitches with his stories. It raised a lot of money but Alex was determined that all of it should go to the NHS," the source said.
"He's always been a great supporter of them and that’s become even more the case since his health issues," the source added.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Alex Ferguson has been banned from attending Man United matches because it is affecting his health.
The 77-year-old was not present during United's 4-1 win over Fulham at Old Trafford because he was banned by his doctors.
His medical team was concerned for his health after he was spotted watching three consecutive games.
