The Class Of '92 Surprise Sir Alex Ferguson With The Best Christmas Present
It has been a tough year for Sir Alex Ferguson.
The former Manchester United manager was rushed to Salford Royal Hospital on May 5 and was put in intensive care after suffering a life-threatening brain hemorrhage.
Sit Alex spent four weeks in hospital before being released. with doctors saying he is"extremely lucky" to be alive.
But he continues to show no signs of slowing down, arriving at what he thought was a normal lunch at The Ivy restaurant in Manchester.
Much to his surprise, Class Of 92' members Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville had arrived before Ferguson - a Christmas present Sir Alex will never forget.
It was a heartwarming gesture from the four lads, who played a pivotal part in Fergie's reign at Old Trafford.
It really is great to see the legend looking so well.
