Ferguson 'sitting up and talking' after surgery

Carlos Queiroz praying for Ferguson recovery

SIR Alex Ferguson is sitting up and talking to family members after waking up in hospital following brain haemorrhage surgery over the weekend.

The 76-year-old, who suffered the haemorrhage on Saturday, remains in intensive care and there has been no official update on his condition from the Premier League club. "His family asked for privacy and that's what I'm going to respect".

He was joined by Sir Alex Ferguson, though the United manager attempted to inject a little brevity into the situation by temporarily reversing roles with Newbon for a quick pre-match Q&A session...

"We hope to see him quickly and we send best wishes to recover very soon".

"I can only think that if there is any relation (to the club's mood), it is a positive relation", he said.

Gestures of support continue for the Scot, who retired in 2013. 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".

Trump backs Central Intelligence Agency nominee Haspel: She's 'tough on terrorists'
Despite opposition from the Senate , the intelligence community largely rallied alongside Haspel. Rights groups and retired military personnel have all decried her nomination.

Several other current and former United players also paid tribute to Ferguson as did United's Premier League rivals, other managers, fans, politicians and governing bodies.

You can take the man of football but you cannot take football out of the man.

"But if the news is correct and Sir Alex is doing well, we are thrilled, we really are. Of course he has qualities that we believe can make him a good coach". "At the moment I am in a bit of unknown territory", said Wenger.

Indeed, not even an FA Cup triumph is likely to spare Mourinho's counterpart, Antonio Conte, from the sack. "It's a tough time for everyone but I'm thinking positive and hoping he will pull through".

Information that Ferguson, one of many sport's biggest ever managers, had been taken sick plunged the world of soccer into shock on Saturday evening.

Mourinho does not need to worry about his position at Old Trafford but he will have to close the gap on City next season if he is to remain at the club for anywhere close to the 26 years Ferguson managed.
