Sir Alex Ferguson 'sitting up and talking' after brain haemorrhage

Sir Alex Ferguson 'sitting up and talking' after brain haemorrhage

"However, they recognise it will still be a slow road to full recovery as he continues to be assessed".

A source of the 76-year-old has told the newspaper: "The prognosis is good and his closest friends in football are being kept abreast of any developments".

Ferguson remains in intensive care but has responded well to treatment and has been showing positive signs of recovery. Support has flooded in from the football world and from those outside the game for Ferguson who is said to have complained of being unwell since Thursday.

"When something like that does happen it's nice that the football world comes together and shows support and we are all rooting for him", Jones said. It was the effect he had on everyone. I just stayed calm and spoke to a few people at the club to get a bit of a rundown on how he was doing.

"I hope he pulls through - not so long ago he was presenting Arsene Wenger with that trophy".

Juan Mata has urged Manchester United to win the FA Cup for Sir Alex Ferguson. They bought Saha; I remember a lot of the boys telling me when I'd go away with England, "I thought you were actually coming".

The Bournemouth striker has enjoyed an excellent career, and is now just one goal away from becoming the joint sixth most prolific player in Premier League history, having already scored 162 goals in the EPL.

Jones is one of those now at United who was signed by Ferguson, having joined from Blackburn in 2011, and the England worldwide has described how pivotal his old manager was in helping him settle in. "I got calls last night from Manchester and nobody knew exactly what it is". Hopefully, he'll recover well. "While there was no official update on his condition yesterday", writes James Tozer, "friends said he had been 'sitting up talking and asking about his results" two days after emergency brain surgery'.

"I've never been coached by him, unfortunately, yet I know well his incomparable legacy on this club". "I went to see him in the box after the game and he looked in a ideal shape", said Wenger, who also started his farewell speech in his final home game at the Emirates on Sunday with well wishes for Ferguson.
