Bryan Robson, the former captain of Manchester United and England, underwent surgery two weeks ago to remove a tumor from his throat. Lab reports revealed that the tumor was cancerous, with Robson needing to undergo further treatment. The former England star is currently coaching the Thailand national team while also serving in an ambassadorial role for Manchester United. The club issued a statement noting that doctors were confident Robson's condition is treatable, and he would be fine to continue his duties in Thailand.

In his 13 years with the Red Devils, the club won back - to - back league titles, captured the FA Cup four times, and brought home the European Cup Winners' Cup. Robson also earned 90 England caps, 65 as captain, and astonished the world by scoring a then record - breaking goal after 27 seconds against France in the World Cup.
