But thankfully the procedure was a success, and after less than a month Fergie was back at home being nursed back to health by his loved ones.

Now the 79-year-old is set to speak about the time he fought for his life in ‘Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In’, out in the cinemas from May 27.

It will then be available exclusively on Amazon Prime from May 29.

Directed by his son Jason, the documentary will recount the most important stories of his life, both in and out of football.

Speaking about the film, Fergie said: “Losing my memory was my biggest fear when I suffered a brain haemorrhage in 2018.

“In the making of this film I was able to revisit the most important moments of my life, good and bad.

“Having my son Jason direct this film has ensured an honest and intimate account.”

The documentary vows to show the football legend vividly recalling his career – recounting the stories behind his most influential defeats, trophies and players.

It charts his move from his own successful playing career and prolific goal-scoring at Scottish clubs, including Rangers, to his move into management and leading Aberdeen to the European Cup Winners’ Cup and then finally his move south to Old Trafford.

After a testing few years at United, he turned the club’s fortunes around and led them to over two decades of consistent success.

Under Ferguson’s guidance, Manchester United won a glittering array of trophies, including 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups and two UEFA Champions League titles.

He has won more trophies than any other manager in football history.

The film features candid interviews with Sir Alex himself, his wife Cathy, his three sons, as well as former colleagues and elite players including Eric Cantona, Ryan Giggs, Gordon Strachan and Archie Knox.
