A scary event in May left Sir Alex Ferguson hospitalized, but the former Manchester United boss appears to be in good spirits, and delivered a special message to fans on Thursday.

The 76-year-old suffered from a brain hemorrhage earlier this year, and Thursday’s video marked the first time he has been in the public view since the unfortunate event.

Ferguson has been out of coaching since May 2013, after an extensive career with the Red Devils that featured 38 trophies.
