The chilling moment Sir Alex Ferguson’s son desperately called for an ambulance after he collapsed with a brain haemorrhage features in new trailer for film documenting life of the legendary Man United manager
The terrifying moment when Sir Alex Ferguson’s son called 999 after the former Manchester United manager collapsed with a brain haemorrhage has been unearthed in a new trailer for a film documenting the legendary Scot’s life.
The trailer for the film – titled: Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In – begins with a recording of the United legend’s son, Jason, calling emergency services on Saturday 5 May, 2018 after Ferguson suffered a brain haemorrhage at his home.
Asked what he recalls of that day, the 79-year-old says: ‘I was crying, you know, because I don’t remember a thing’.
The film reveals that Ferguson feared memory-related consequences of his collapse, with the United legend enjoying an illustrious career at Old Trafford in which he won 38 trophies with the Red Devils.
The documentary explores Ferguson’s life, from his childhood in Glasgow through to his emotional return to Old Trafford after recovering from the haemorrhage.
Over 550 hours’ worth of material was gathered for the film, directed by Jason, with contributions from a number of stars that Ferguson developed while in the hotseat at United.
