Phil Jones, Ryan Giggs wish former manager Ferguson a full recovery

(Ah Fat Talk Ball) - Manchester United defender Phil Jones has described his former manager Alex Ferguson as a "father figure" and backed him to return to full health after suffering a brain haemorrhage.

Ferguson underwent emergency surgery on Saturday which United said had gone "extremely well" and the 76-year-old is recovering from the operation in intensive care.

Jones was signed from Blackburn Rovers by Ferguson in 2011 and was part of the Scot's 13th Premier League title in his final season before retiring in 2013.

Wales manager Ryan Giggs, who was handed his United debut by Ferguson in 1991, said he was praying for his former manager's recovery.

Giggs was one of "Fergie's Fledglings", along with David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Gary and Phil Neville, who were in the United team that won numerous trophies under Ferguson, including the 1999 treble.
