Sir Alex Ferguson welcomed back to Old Trafford

Ferguson, accompanied by his wife Cathy, took his seat in the United directors' box as the applause continued.

Ferguson had emergency surgery for a brain haemorrhage on 5 May and was in intensive care for several days following the operation.

A good day got even better for the Wolves fans as they claimed a deserved point at Old Trafford as the match finished 1-1.

Manchester United have confirmed their team and substitutes to take on Wolves in a Premier League contest at Old Trafford this afternoon.

"I'm a bit nervous (about being back at Old Trafford) to be honest with you, maybe a bit tense really because I think my last game was Arsenal back in April some time, so it's a long time. I'm gradually making the steps forward".

'We've played six games in the Premier League, it's not that we should get anxious, but we should obviously get closer - get closer and closer (to the leaders).

The club said that they will be honouring Ferguson on his return to Old Trafford.

Traore joined Premier League club Wolves from Championship side Middlesbrough in the summer transfer window for a fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £18 million.

Ferguson had also appeared on video to deliver a message to Paul Scholes at a charity dinner in honour of the former United midfielder.

"There were thousands of cards, and they kept arriving at Salford Royal Hospital".

But soon after, while on worldwide break, Pogba said: "I'm playing at United at the moment, but who knows what will happen in the next few months".

"What you have to know about Alexis is he is a hard worker", Pogba said.

Amid conjecture in August that the midfielder received overtures from Barcelona, Pogba answered a question regarding his happiness at United saying: "There are things I can not say otherwise I will get fined".

"The emails, texts, cards, it was unbelievable, I was overwhelmed by it". It was really important to do that.

It sure is great to see the footballing legend back on his feet.
