SIR Alex Ferguson on Saturday returned to Old Trafford for the first time since undergoing emergency brain surgery in May.
A picture of the former Manchester United manager arriving at the ground ahead of the Premier League clash with Wolves was posted on the club’s official Twitter account, with a caption reading: “Welcome back to Old Trafford, Sir Alex.”
Ferguson thanked medical staff in a video message released by the club in July, when he revealed that he intended to be back at Old Trafford to watch United in the coming season.

And the 76-year-old Scot told MUTV on Saturday: “I’m really good.
“Obviously it’s been a long journey and I’m gradually making steps forward, doing what my son tells me and what the doctors tell me, so, yeah, I’m really good.
“I’m a bit nervous, to be honest with you, maybe a bit tense really because I think my last game was Arsenal back in April. It was a long time but it’s great to be back and I just hope we get a win today.
“It’s great to go back to the stadium and it’s going to be quite emotional for me when the game starts, things like that. It had to happen some time and I’ve been looking forward to it. The important thing was getting the right time and the right rest before coming to a game.
