Sir Alex Ferguson arrives for Manchester United vs Wolves

Sir Alex Ferguson has arrived to attend his first Manchester United game since he suffered a brain haemorrhage in May.

Ferguson, 76, was photographed arriving at Old Trafford for the visit of Wolves on Saturday and will take his place in the directors' box for the game.

United wrote on Twitter: "Welcome back to Old Trafford, Sir Alex." Ferguson has not been present for a United game since the April 29 win over Arsenal when he presented Arsene Wenger with a commemorative vase.

On Thursday, Ferguson recorded a video message for United legend Paul Scholes that was played at a dinner in celebration of his Old Trafford career.

The Association of Former Manchester United Players held their 33rd annual charity sportsman's dinner in tribute to Scholes at Old Trafford that Ferguson, who is recovering from a brain haemorrhage he suffered in May, was unable to attend. That did not stop the United great from paying homage to one of his finest players.

Ferguson was taken unwell on May 5 but recovered from illness to record a video message in July in which he thanked hospital staff and well-wishers.

Ferguson said: "Hello, just a quick message first of all to thank the medical staff at Macclesfield, Salford Royal, and Alexandra Hospitals," Ferguson said. "Believe me, without those people, who gave me such great care, I would not be sitting here today. So thank you from me and my family. Thank you very much.

"It’s made me feel so humble, as all the messages I've had from all over the world wishing me the best and the good wishes do resonate very, very strongly with me. So thank you for that support you've given me.

"And lastly, I’ll be back later in the season to watch the team. And in the meantime, all the best to Jose and the players. Thank you very much."
